Come one, come all to witness the Thimblerig Circus at the Martin Lipscomb Performing Arts Center on Saturday, Feb. 12, at 7:30 p.m. Thimblerig is a fancy name for the cup and ball routine. It’s a magic trick disguised as a game of skill. This comedy team is made up of the last three surviving members of the famous Moldavian circus of the same name.
Having traveled from Moldavia to The Americas, Thimblerig is excited to share with the Americans everything there is to know about Moldavian tradition, particularly traditions involving juggling, fire-eating, and putting nails where nails shouldn’t go.
