Circus in a Trunk is the critically acclaimed theatrical stage show created by The Piccolini Trio.
The clowns arrive at the theater to discover that the audience is already waiting, but the circus is late. The three clowns then decide to perform the show themselves, pulling an amazing and hilarious performance full of clever surprises from an antique circus trunk.
Combining contemporary and classic European style clowning, The Piccolini Trio brings to life a repertoire of routines using music, acrobatics, physical comedy, poetic whimsy, juggling, and pantomime. Intimate and engaging, the show is creative and current while evoking a nostalgic old-world charm.
While enjoying sold out houses and rave reviews three seasons in a row at Manhattan’s Canal Park Playhouse, Circus in a Trunk has been called “Completely endearing, endlessly entertaining and charming” – nytheatre.com, “Artful, captivating” -womanaroundtown.com, and “Smart and inventive” – ushernonsense.com.
Circus in a Trunk is approximately one hour with no intermission.
