This 90 minute production is specifically designed for theatres seating 150 to 500 people. It is meant to be an intimate theatrical experience where members of the audience are never far away from the amazing events taking place in front of them.
The Remarkable Life & Magic of HOUDINI is storytelling for adults punctuated with live escapes and magical illusions. From Houdini’s first encounter with a straightjacket in Saint John, New Brunswick to the unveiling of his infamous Underwater Torture Cell, audiences will be spellbound by the extraordinary adventure of America’s first real-life super hero.
Keeping in mind the evolution of the contemporary audience, Lawrence has designed updated versions of all the illusions included in Houdini’s story. After all, what worked in the early 1900’s would not necessarily work for audience of the 21st century.
