The Illusionists: Witness the Impossible
When: Tue, June 2, 2015, 7:30pm – 10:00pm
Where: 615 Louisiana St, Houston, TX 77002
Jones Hall — Society for the Performing Arts — Seven of the most incredible illusionists on earth perform mind-bending acts of magic and illusion, including many feats never seen before. Each Illusionist is a master in his/her own field. With an assembled cast of 20 sidekicks, they will perform a powerful mix of their most outrageous and unbelievable acts: grand illusion, levitation, mind-reading, disappearance and, for the first time ever, a full view water torture escape. This group of world-class performers takes its cue from the showmanship of the great illusionists of the past, such as Harry Houdini, and pair it with a new and updated contemporary aesthetic, whose set and costume design lend the genre a theatricality and artistry that has rarely been seen before. Don’t miss seeing The Anti-Conjurer, The Trickster, The Escapologist, The Inventor, The Gentleman, The Enchantress and The Surrealist when they come to Houston for the first time.
