America's Got Talent Finalists Added To MAGICAL CIRQUE CHRISTMAS
Producers Simon Painter, Tim Lawson and MagicSpace Entertainment have announced that the husband and wife team Tyce and Mary Nielsen of Duo Transcend, who appeared last night as finalists on this season's "America's Got Talent," will be featuring their gravity-defying acts and tricks in A MAGICAL CIRQUE CHRISTMAS, the spell-binding and incredible new holiday production coming to Playhouse Square December 12 for one 7:30 pm performance. (Tickets: $55, $45, $35, $20 at playhousesquare.org & 216-241-6000.)
In A MAGICAL CIRQUE CHRISTMAS, Duo Transcend will use extreme strength and flexibility to gracefully move through the air in their "Duo Trapeze" act, a beautiful aerial dance performed by the two artists. In "Duo Roller Skating," they will perform a combination of daring acrobatic tricks and spins while masterfully balancing on a small circular platform.
Tyce and Mary Nielsen met while performing as high divers in a cliff diving show. Some of their show credits include: Circus Flic Flac, The Great American Variety Show and the world-famous Cirque du Soleil. When not performing they live in Salt Lake City with their son Jaxx.

A MAGICAL CIRQUE CHRISTMAS will be hosted by magician Paul Dabek, who will leave audiences in hysterics while introducing each act with mesmerizing, magical flair as he weaves and guides them through the unimaginable to the unbelievable.
