Poised- A One Man Juggling Journey is an experience that aims to have you question the absolute limits of what is humanly possible. Brought to you by one of Chicago's top jugglers, Poised is a family friendly show full of laughs and amazing feats of balance and coordination.

 

Bathhouse John's Magnificent Menagerie of Magical Circus Creatures
Alderman Bathhouse John of Chicago has become unstuck in time! A few weeks ago, a magician was poised to perform the second half of this show, and alas! Through a mix-up of mystical proportions, a portal was opened to the year 1906 and Bathhouse John Coughlin, seizing the opportunity, quickly switched places with the silly Sorcerer!
Now, he comes to you, for one afternoon only, to show you the magical creatures that he has populated his Colorado resort park with. Being an Alderman of a multitude of skills, he has trained these animals in a wide awry of aerial circus arts. Why yes, you shall see a penguin juggle, an elephant fly, and more!
And will he read his greatest poetic creations? OF COURSE HE WILL! WILL HE SING HIS GREATEST WORK- THE OPERETTA, DEAR MIDNIGHT OF LOVE! NONE CAN STOP HIM!
Come! Friends, Chicagoans, and denizens of Chicago's old First Ward! It may not be the First Ward Ball in all its glory, but it's the closest we're going to see in our lifetime. Let's have three cheers for the Bath!
HIP HIP HIP HURRAH! HIP HIP HURRAH! HIP HIP....HURRAH!
