• 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!


American Political Tribal Leader Mike Bloomberg, his deputies and loyal supporters.

Mayor Mike Bloomberg, assisted by the Broadway cast of the hit revival “Hair,” presented a hallucinogenic rebuttal to the 2010 Inner Circle Show.

Changing the name to “Mair,” the mayor portrayed himself as the leader of a tribe of long-haired, trippy college kids in his hometown of Medford, MA. In songs and dances from the 60s musical, they outlined the future mayor’s goals and philosophy: make money, be smart and efficient and watch your salt intake!

Psychedelic Mike even attempted to take a “trip,” but the hallucinogens weren’t strong enough to overtake his straight-and-narrow will. But the Broadway cast managed to cut loose, singing and jumping into the preferred-seating section of the audience, dancing on top of tables, and getting even a few of the Saturday night crowd to let their own hair down.

It was Bloomberg’s ninth rebuttal to the Inner Circle.

“MAIR” capped off another successful show night for The Inner Circle.

The IC’s own production, “Trilite – Bloomberg Bites,” was a spoof in which the mayor is a vampire-like creature who can’t stop running for elected office. The show was cheered and declared a wild success by the Friday-night dress rehearsal crowd.

On Saturday night, as one long-time observer noted, even the fat-cat guests’ ice cubes never seemed to melt. Some things never change.
