Matt takes you to Broadway’s Palace Theatre for a peek at THE ILLUSIONISTS: TURN OF THE CENTURY.
The Illusionists are back on on Broadway! Their third consecutive holiday run welcomes an all-new cast of conjurors to the New York stage. This year, the company takes audiences back in time, to the turn of the 20th century. This era will always be considered ‘The Golden Age of Magic.’
And what better place to honor this Golden Age than the historic Palace Theatre? Originally a vaudeville house, the likes of Thurston, Houdini, and more magicians from the early 1900s graced its stage. Once you set foot in the theatre, you’ll understand why no other venue is better-suited for the best-selling magic show on earth.
Matt interviewed Mark Kalin (The Showman), Jinger Leigh (The Conjuress), Charlie Frye (The Eccentric), Dana Daniels (The Charlatan), and Jonathan Goodwin (The Daredevil) in person at the theater. Plus, you will also hear Matt’s thoughts on Rick Thomas (The Immortal), Justo Thaus Jin (The Grand Carlini) and America’s Got Talent runners up Thommy Ten and Amelie Van Tass (The Clairvoyants).
While The Illusionists: Turn of the Century pays homage to early 20th century magi, you will not find a Houdini impersonator here. This show features magicians hand-picked by producer Simon Painter. Each performer brings his or her finely-honed personal act to The Illusionists company. These entertainers have perfected the routines they present over thousands of shows around the world. You will see why the magicians of today owe it all to those that came before.
The Illusionists made appearances on Broadway during the 2014 and 2015 holiday seasons, shattering box office records during both runs. The Turn of the Century iteration broke records in Melbourne, Australia throughout the last year.
The Illusionists: Turn of the Century runs through January 1st, 2017. Click here for tickets.
Talk For Two will return in the New Year. Have a wonderful, and yes, magical holiday season!
