“This fabulous show is not a circus in the conventional sense—only two of the 28 songs even mention the ‘C’ word—but the circus concept is as loose and baggy and full of pocket novelties as a clown’s trousers. Ringmaster Ken Lonnquist’s extravaganza does boast a veritable menagerie and a tidy sideshow of exotic characters. The latter include the shady, all-knowing Guru Guy, the nose-offending outlaw Windy Bill, and a slam-dunk wizard. Best of all is The Switcher-On Of Stars, a slightly mystical epic about the adventures that befall the title character, the earth, and the heavens. Considering its abundance of diverse material and musical styles (including credible calypso and western swing), The Circus Kenlando is well worth the price of admission."
