Mindblowing, a brain bender, jaw dropping...all describe The Illusionists, Live from Broadway, considered one of the most thrilling and sophisticated magic shows featuring the talents of 7 of the world's master illusionists.
A show for all ages that wows with incredible acts of mind-reading, levitation, disappearance, illusion and water escapes, the 7 acclaimed performers combine the feats of past magicians such as Harry Houdini and meld it with modern illusion, theatrics and artistry for a show like no other.
The performers are:
Dan Perry, The Anti-Conjouror, specializes in shock illusions, combining magic with the macabre.
Yu Ho-Jin, The Manipulator uses mystery and elegant manipulation.
Kevin James, The Inventor is considered one of the world's most groundbreaking and innovative illusionists.
Andrew Basso, The Escapologist, conjours Harry Houdini in his life and death underwater escape performances.
Jeff Hobson, The Trickster and the show's host offers comedic relief, glamor and showmanship with amazing slight of hand.
Ben Blaque is The Weapon Master, performing dangerous acts of dexterity using crossbows.
James More is The Deceptionist, who uses fast-paced, high-risk illusions without the help of cameras or special editing: what you see is what you get.
Considered a "high-tech extravaganza' by the New York Times, 'Houdini Times Seven' by the New York Daily News and 'Incredible, astounding, amusing, mystifying, perplexing and challenging...' by the Australian Stage this stunningly spectacular show is a definite must-see.
Performed in London and on Broadway and now on its world tour, the show is in San Francisco at the SHN Orpheum Theatre from February 16th through the 21st, 2016.
