Before the Hays
Polly of the Circus in Brooklyn

I saw this article today in The New York Times about an event/performance space in Brooklyn called “The House of Yes”. You should check it out, looks really interesting.
With the advent of Cirque de Soleil their seems to be a growing population of circus type performers. A new burlesque & aerialist movement seems to have permeated Brooklyn.

Kae Burke performs at a House of Yes party in Bushwick, Brooklyn.


This made me think of a great Pre-Code film called Polly of the Circus (1932). If you are a William Randolph Hearst fan Marion Davies stars in this one.
