For the past decade, writer, actor, instructor and clown extraordinaire Shannan Calcutt has called the Las Vegas stage of Cirque du Soleil’s show Zumanity her home. As well as being the show’s Co-Comedic Director and the Clown Coach for Cirque du Soleil’s resident shows, Shannan is best known as Izzy, the charming and radiant clown with the keen sense of timing and a razor sharp wit. In Burnt Tongue, Izzy has met a man on the internet and decides this is the guy for her! She arrives for their blind date wearing a wedding dress insisting she’s just “totally prepared to be spontaneous.”

A talk back session with the artist follows each show.

Appropriate for ages 16 +
