Sawdust Circle - One4Review

When circuses were the lifeblood of some families, when audiences equaled living well and empty tents starvation.   We meet Bernie MacFee, his family and faithful performers, Lawrence Sorrento as MacFee, Pippa Evans ,his wife Alina and Victoria Robertson his daughter Anya. Life is slow for the MacFees and Circus so they decide to audition for a new act, out of the blue appears Joseph Finelli, Spencer James, of the high flying Finelli family. After the death of his parents, Finelli moves to America. He is taken on as the star attraction and works on a routine with Anya. Anya was part of her husband Sam’s (Neil Watson) Knife throwing act but had always practiced the high wire and trapeze. As Finelli and Anya grow together as partners and emotionally Sam’s jealousy multiplies. This musical has interesting characters, a twisting plot, good musical numbers, the smell of the grease paint and the roar of the crowd. A company of t welve very good performers and a decent script To experience the thrills of the circus and discover the ending go to see the Sawdust Circle. ****
