Cirkus Inferno- Daredevil Opera Company
The Daredevil Opera Company is a Canadian based Theatre/Circus company founded by Canadian Clown Jonah Logan. Main performers in the company include Jonah, NY Clown Amy Gordon, and Sound Designer Paul Weir.
They specialize in doing circus/stunt shows that feature excellent clowning and pyrotechnics. Their main show Cirkus Inferno has played all over the world, and is currently playing at the New Victory Theatre in NY. I highly recommend seeing the show– I’ve seen it twice before, and am going to see it this time too!
