Here’s a great article written about my show in the Washington Post!:

The magic of the flea circus climaxed during the chariot race. That’s when ringmaster Adam Gertsacov persuaded the audience to fall in love with Midge and Madge, the tiny stars of his Acme Miniature Circus.
Yesterday about 40 people — a mix of families and hipsters — at the Palace of Wonders on H Street NE rose to their feet, craning their necks to get a better look at the action. Gertsacov, wearing a purple top hat, shot a toy gun and the fleas were off.
“We’ve approached the straightaway,” he said, talking double-time, like a sports announcer. “It’s going to be a very close race. Midge is making her move. Let’s hear it!”
The audience screamed and one man broke into a chant: “Let’s go, Midge! Let’s go, Midge!”
(and in case you are wondering, that is me to the right!)
