April 2017 - Let Us Entertain You: The Illusionists Live
On the heels of a highly successful multi-city tour and run on Broadway, the world’s best-selling touring magic show, The Illusionists - Live From Broadway™, will play Popejoy Hall for six performances May 4th-7th. Full of hilarious magic tricks, death-defying stunts, and acts of breathtaking wonder, The Illusionists has shattered box office records worldwide and thrilled audiences of all ages with a mind-blowing spectacular showcasing the jaw-dropping talents of seven of the most incredible illusionists on earth.
Creative Producer Simon Painter said, “We can’t wait to bring this electrifying show to Albuquerque….The Illusionists is the most non-stop and powerful mix of outrageous and astonishing acts ever to be seen on the live stage.”
The stars include Dan Sperry, The Anti-Conjuror, who is described as Marilyn Manson meets David Copperfield. The Trickster, Jeff Hobson, is the epitome of glamor and showmanship. The Inventor, Kevin James, is known for innovative illusions and is a collector of the strange and unusual. Andrew Basso, The Escapologist, is Italy’s star escape artist and the only person in the world to perform Houdini’s famous Water Torture Cell with absolutely no covers. Known as The Deductionist, Colin Cloud is one of the greatest thought readers of all time. The Weapon Master, Ben Blaque, has established himself as America’s foremost master of the crossbow after appearing four times on America’s Got Talent. Finally, The Manipulator, An Ha Lim, is the first place winner at Korea’s Busan International Magic Competition (2006), Italy Club Convention Manipulation (2006) and World Magic Seminar in Asia (2007).
“This is the first show to have 7 of the best magicians and illusionists in the same show. Each cast member has their own show they do - but have chosen to come together and tour the world to put on the best live magic show audiences have ever seen.”
With this stellar cast, The Illusionists is such to be a show of non-stop excitement for the entire family.
