If there was ever a girl put under a spell, that was me seeing this magic extravaganza. The production, involving eleven illusionists, is much more than a magic show. The performers’ slight-of-hand incorporates humorous, heartwarming, dazzling, and scary elements. While watching it, I went from laughing and cheering, to holding my breath during the replication of Houdini’s escape from his famous upside-down Chinese Water Torture Cell!
My dad snapped this pic before the show. I took him for Father’s Day, but I think I enjoyed the performance just as much as he did, if not more. I was so enthralled by the acts that now I want to take magic lessons.
Since this is Travel Thursday, here is the Illusionists’ tour schedule. I hope you get a chance to see them. http://www.theillusionistslive.com/
