Lexi Pearl on â€śthe silksâ€ť with stilts. How does she do that?!
Mothers Day has come and gone but we canâ€™t help but mention the annual spectacle that is Lexi Pearlâ€™s MOMentum Place. To watch her warm up the audience strutting around the stage on six-foot stilts brings the magic to come front and center when the circus takes the stage. â€śThey fly through the air with the greatest of easeâ€¦.â€ť Airborne ballets flying on ropes, silks, and cubes, brought down the house. Dari Williams was mesmerizing in a spectacular aerial pole performance. Scot Nery, a supreme juggler with a comedy routine, and ventriloquist Karl Herlinger both captured the audienceâ€™s funnybone non-stop. The finale, a duo with Lexi and Elena Brocade on the trapeze enraptured everyone. Pre-show, as people streamed into the amphitheater, Gerald Rivers and Friends electrified the air with a drum circle (actually a semi-circle) that called people to their seats.
So, thatâ€™s where I was on Mothers Day, enjoying, as well, Patrice Winterâ€™s brunch before the show.
