Overview

This show has been canceled.

Thom Wall is a circus artist and researcher based in Germantown, PA. This Fringe season, instead of performing at a venue, he’s opening his home for tours of his collection of historic circus ephemera. Photos, props, a 2,500 year-old lekythos, and more. A show? A tour? Meet the artist? You decide!
