Getting in a Patriotic Mood...

I heart Amy Gordon.

Independent circus has been a big part of the development of the New York burlesque scene, and adult cabaret and variety shows featuring physical comedy and circus skills have been a part of my life since I was in high school. I feel that I have, literally, run away with the circus. God Bless America.
