Set in a world where physical ability meets the extraordinary, Zarkana, which TIME magazine proclaimed “the show of the summer” in New York City and The New York Times called “aah-inspiring,” was seen by more than 1.5 million people during its triumphant 2011-2012 international run.

The show follows Zark, the ringmaster of an extraordinary circus coming back to life, as he guides us in an abandoned theatre populated by a motley collection of off-the-wall characters and incomparable acrobats. Zarkana is a visual vortex set in a twisted acrobatic fantasy universe where, little by little, chaos and craziness give way to a true celebration. In typical Cirque fashion, an unknowing audience member gets pulled on stage by the clowns of Zarkana during the Electric Chair act.

Jennette McCurdy, star of Nickolodeon’s iCarly, was chosen for the cameo appearance at the Las Vegas premiere. As the clowns strapped her into the electric chair the light switch flipped multiple times to make ‘magic’ happen on stage.
