Sarasota, FL — April 3, 2009 — The electrifying energy of the circus will once again captivate audiences this summer when Jamie Adkins, a one-man-tour-de-force takes center stage at the Historic Asolo Theater to present his own production, Circus INcognitus, June 10-July 19, 2009. Circus INcognitus is presented by The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in partnership with Circus Sarasota.
“We are thrilled to partner with Circus Sarasota for the third year in a row,” said Dwight Currie, Associate Director of Programming at the Ringling Museum. “This electrifying performance will join the ranks of other circus performances we’ve brought to the Historic Asolo Theater stage to date. I am confident Sarasota will fall in love with Jamie Adkins.”
From humble beginnings as a street performer, Adkins climbed the circus ladder to become one of the most popular performers in the circus arena today.
