The Illusionists: Witness The Impossible is an exciting, amazing, and unique magic show starring the world’s greatest conjurors.
The show will run on Broadway, at the Neil Simoon Theatre, during the 2015 holiday season. A tour of North America gets underway Sept. 11, 2015 in Springfield, Ohio.
Illusionists tickets will be collected at venues all over North America including those in Hartford, Fort Wayne, Des Moines, Chattanooga, Los Angeles, and Baltimore.
The tour will stretches well into 2016.
This is not your father’s magic show. Taking a page from Cirque du Soleil’s playbook, The Illusionists is a fast-paced, intense, and stunningly beautiful show.
All of the seven magicians are guaranteed to leave you in awe and completely dumbfounded. While there are traditional gags such as sawing a man in half and “is this your card?,” all tricks have been updated to blow your mind.
You’ll be leaving the venue wondering “how did they do that?”
Here are the seven acts scheduled to appear in the Illusionists…
Speery is the show’s best known talent thanks to appearances on America’s Got Talent. He specializes in “shock illusions.” If you’re going to lose your lunch it will be during one of his tricks.
Crow dazzles his audience with weapon magic. Who knew that was a thing? Needless to say, his act will have you on the edge of your seat holding your breath.
Basically, Yu performs sleight of hand magic. Of course, he does so with flare, elegance, and creativity. He’s so good he’s called “The Future of Magic.”
Don’t worry. He’s not THAT Kevin James. This Kevin James is one of the world’s most innovated illusionists. The word that best describe his act is “original.”
You can’t hold Basso down. Literally! He is, after all, the world’s greatest escape artist. Many call him the successor to Harry Houdini. Some even say he’s better.
What Hobson lacks in death-defying stunts, cool weaponry, and gross magic tricks, he makes up for it with comedy and showmanship. You come hoping to see one of the other acts impale themselves (or worse) but you come back to see Hobson.
Trent serves as the show’s emcee, but he’s much more than a good-looking guy in a tailored suit. He’s a world class magician, dancer, and comedian. Trent uses technology to create unforgettable illusions.
