Saturday is World Juggling Day. (Yeah, we don’t know how we missed that on the calendar, either). To celebrate, juggler extraordinaire Jim Mackenzie will debut a new show entitled “Stage Flight” at the Frenetic Theater Friday and Saturday. We talk with Jim about his show (which he stresses is not just juggling – there’s sword swallowing, whips, unicycles – it’s elaborate) – and we meet some of his fellow Houston juggling enthusiasts (including Bruce Manners, pictured above) who gather for regular Thursday night “juggling meetings” at a church in the Museum District.
