• We Will See You in 2021!


    Thank you for your patience as we took the time to review our options for the Inner Circle Show. For nearly 100 years, our annual event has raised much-needed funds for local charities. This year, we’re taking a pause to allow our beautiful city to stay inside and #FlattenTheCurve.


    We will not be gathering together to celebrate in person this year, but we know you’ll make next year’s show the best one yet. Meanwhile, your continued support during this unprecedented time allows us to carry on our mission. Click here to support us.


    And stay tuned as we explore ways to provide a virtual glimpse into what we were working on this year!


    Stay safe. Stay healthy. We’ll see you next year!

"Focker-Uppers" Is Thumbs Up!

“Spidey Mike” Rebuts 2011 Inner Circle Show

The Mayor as "Spidey Mike" in his musical rebuttal.

“Meet the Focker-Uppers.” a mildly controversial but always playful parody of politics and government, was met with applause and praise at the 2011 Inner Circle performance, March 26.

Many in the audience ranked it among the best Inner Circle shows in memory.  And the rebuttal by Mayor Michael Bloomberg continued the parade of hits.

The chorus belts out "Two More Years" at the end of Act 1.

Decked out in a Spiderman costume, the mayor “flew” onto the stage. Then, he and the cast of the Broadway musical “Momma Mia” performed several scenes in what they called “Mayor Mia.” And in a good-humored rebuttal, in his closing lines the mayor quipped that the Inner Circle were those “little fockers!”
