The Know Theatre welcomes the return of the eccentric Beggar’s Carnivale this weekend. The show was started a few years back by performer Sammich the Tramp and burlesque performer and producer Lolla Van Ella. The Beggar’s Carnivale combines music, traditional circus arts and elements from silent films, all seamlessly integrating to create an unforgettable show.
The show has been described as a “Cirque du Soleil on a whiskey bender” for its fast-paced, high-energy theatrical atmosphere and is sure to leave the audience in a state of rapture. Some adult content. 9 p.m. $18. Friday and Saturday. Know Theatre, 1120 Jackson St., Over-the-Rhine. knowtheatre.com.
