COMING SOON TO SCT- Harley Newman: Theater of Danger

The Circus of Wonders and Single Carrot Theatre present Orange Flames

Harley Newman: Theater of Danger

Friday, March 15, 2013

8:00 PM

Tickets: $15 or $10 students, artists and wizards

“A cerebral romp through what makes us human!”

“Legendary performance artist!”

“Human Oxymoron!”


At birth, doctors wondered if Harley would survive. They still do. In his evolution from circus clown to something else, he has pushed the boundaries of stunt, and is the only person ever to be recognized with Lifetime Achievement awards for performance in both sideshow and escapes.

Harley pushes limits. He walks barefoot on sharp swords, dances in broken glass, and clears his sinuses with a high-heeled shoe! He swallows swords, uses his tongue to stop fans and pick locks, and escapes from a straitjacket while riding a unicycle!

His television appearances include The Today Show, The Tonight Show, Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, and Penn & Teller’s Sin City Spectacular, and have been viewed by approximately a billion people. Harley has repeatedly taken his unique art form to ever further extremes, entering into territories thought to be impossible. He was rejected by the Guinness Book of Records as “too dangerous to publish”.

Join Harley on the knife’s edge bridge between the universe inside his head and the world outside. Each step leaves you wondering what could possibly happen next!


This show is presented as part of Single Carrot Theatre’s Second Series.
