Circuscope

Through 3/22: Fri 7:30 PM, Sat 4:30 PM, Sun 3 PM

Circus productions are often described as larger-than-life, but this one takes an unforgettably miniature approach. The Actors Gymnasium's Winter Circus grew out of charismatic starring clown Dean Evans's obsession with the tardigrade, a microscopic eight-legged animal that is virtually indestructible. That sensibility gives the show’s clowning and jaw-dropping acrobatics, from tumbling to the trapeze, a charmingly amoebic and cellular feel. With their professionalism, enthusiasm, and raw talent, the show's teen ensemble fits right in next to its four professional artists: besides Evans, there's Molly Plunk as his lovestruck foil, glamorous Meredith "Tommy" Tomlins on aerial silks and juggling, and Leah Leor (in the show’s best costume, inspired by Nick Cave’s Soundsuits) on aerial straps. —Marissa Oberlander $15-$20

White Guy on the Bus

Through 2/28: Tue and Thu 7:30 PM, Wed 1 and 7:30 PM, Fri 8 PM, Sat 2:30 and 8 PM, Sun 2:30 and 7 PM

If America were a king in a Greek play, his tragedy­­—the circumstance he can't evade, the sin for which he can never atone—would be slavery. For all its horror, the subjugation of Native Americans can be viewed as a tectonic motion of history. One plate sliding bloodily over the other. Slavery was a business strategy. Sure, plenty of us think the Civil War paid the price for black servitude in lives, money, and legislation. But as events from the assassination of Abraham Lincoln right on through to the demonization of Barack Obama and the choking of Eric Garner attest, the War Between the States was just the gods' way of warming up. Bruce Graham's White Guy on the Bus, demonstrates how completely fucked-up we all remain as a result of crimes that only technically ended 150 years ago. Not that this Northlight Theatre world premiere is about slavery per se. As far as I can recall, the word never gets mentioned. But Graham's 21st-century Philadelphians don't need to talk about it any more than a fish needs to discuss water. They're swimming in it. Continue reading >> $25-$78
