Circus Vargas—the circus that forgoes animal acts in favor of good old-fashioned superhuman how’d-he-do-that?—returns to the Irvine Spectrum with an up-gunned program based on magic, mysticism and, if the reports of clowns doing a "Gangnam Style" routine are true, Internet memes as well! Besides the usual—this probably being the only time “usual” gets attached to something about Circus Vargas—acrobatics and comedy routines, Circus Vargas is touring their Magikaria Extreme show, featuring “mystical, magical warrior” Patrick Gable and his glitzy set of illusions. They also have one of those big iron globes with the motorcycles roaring around inside. That’s as old school as it gets—awesome.
Mondays, Wednesdays-Sundays, 7:30 p.m. Starts: May 1. Continues through May 19, 2014
