UniverSoul Circus

Houston has seen several circus shows this summer. Each has its own flavor, but only UniverSoul Circus features an all-minority cast. There’s Trinity 3 (foot jugglers from Ethiopia and China), Twisted Soul (contortionists from Guinea) and the Rough Riders (horse riders from Gabon). Everything’s overseen by Maggie Shirley Lee Mae Frances Upshaw Jenkins (played by Georgian comic Patrice Lovely), UniverSoul’s resident gossip, busybody and advice maven. 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, 10:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, noon, 4 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, 12:30, 3:30 and 6:30 p.m. Sunday.
