My ticket was:

Zarkana stands for "2 Annoying Clowns"

We planned for some time to see Zarkana after seeing them on AGT and paid 287 each for 3 of us and found ourselves about 14 rows away in a hot (AC didn't appear to be on or working)and cramped radio city music hall.
Clown act started and throughout entire 1hr 37 (no intermission thank goodness) min ripoff they completely annoyed eveyone in the crowd.
The only acts that were any good were the exact same acts that were shown on Americas Got Talent and if we knew that we could have went to see Annie. Dont waste your money on this glorified circus.
I've seen Cicrque de sole before O show and that was far better than this clown show.
Save your money on this and watch rerun of AGT if you missed the episode of them performing on it.
This was awful and I'm so ticked off I wasted almost $900 on this three ring debacle.
Here's another tip how about singing in English it makes it so much better for the listener is it too much to ask for paying 300 dollars a seat to actually understand what the bleep they are saying?
The only good thing is that it ends early.
I saw recently the man who started Circue De Sole and he's flying privately and making millions from his fancy circus well it's the last dollar he gets for his plane fuel from me because before I pay another $300 to watch that ridiculous show I'll be outside doing street mime.
At least you won't have to try and understand me.
Zarkana must stand for "Two Annoying Clowns "because thats all I remember from this awful show.
