MOMentum Place Performances Thrilled a Capacity Crowd on Mother’s Day

At the finale of the show, Eric Newton and Momentum Place creator Lexi Pearl, who’ve been performing together for years, were an awe-inspiring duo on the aerial silks.

On Mother’s Day, May 11, lovely Lexi Pearl presented her 16th annual MOMentum Place at Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum.

It was once again a show jam-packed with such a staggering variety of stellar aerial, dance, music and comedy acts that you couldn’t help but “ooh,” “ah” and “ha” all the way through the hour and a half that literally flew by.
