“On the 6th of July, 1988, I lost my mother. I don’t mean she died. She vanished. Which was suspicious, as my father was a magician. A club magician who never quite escaped the Legions and Rotary circuit. But maybe he outdid himself just this once.”

The Grand Illusion transports the audience into a world of hocus-pocus and the desire to believe. Our guides are a detective, a celebrated author, and a mystic on the threshold between the living and the dead. Oh, and the greatest showman on earth, the incomparable Harry Houdini.

* Premium Adult patrons will be given first choice of seating each performance night.
