High-flying fun

Break out your 1940s vintage finest.

Next month, Suspended Cirque brings “Swingin’ at Jack’s” to Galapagos Art Space in DUMBO, a speak easy-themed show that mixes class with sass.

Circus art enthusiasts may find the new show familiar; it’s an expansion on the aerial theater troupe’s last show, “Speak Easy,” which ran earlier this year, and is a “new and improved version,” said Angela Jones, founder of Suspended Cirque.

In the encore performances, expect more of the same high-flying action, performed on ropes, trapezes and hoops, and jazzy soundtrack, provided by Victoria Cave and her band. Order a sidecar and sit back as coy cigarette girls, a sassy French maître d’ and Jack himself let the drama unfold right in your lap. Just remember, no smoking allowed.

Swingin’ at Jack’s runs at Galapagos Art Space [16 Main St. at Water Street in DUMBO, (718) 222-8500] every Sunday in April at 8 pm. Tickets $25, $20 for students and those in costume. For info, visit
