Ticket Price



We just released a small batch of in-person tickets for tomorrow's 7:00 p.m. show. Once they're gone, livestream tickets for the 7:00 p.m. show will still be available until January 27 at 5:00 p.m.

Fresh off his debut on "America's Got Talent," WBUR midday anchor Jack Lepiarz, AKA Jack the Whipper, will perform highlights from the show he has spent decades perfecting and talk about growing up in the circus, with a special guest appearance by his longtime performing partner, Ses Carny, for selected routines from their widely acclaimed "Secret Show." Fresh ear plugs will be available at the door for all in-person attendees (the whips are MUCH louder indoors!).
