“The Illusionists – Live From Broadway”


By Kelley Moody

Segerstrom Center for the Arts is one of 45 stops for the brilliant best-selling magic show, “The Illusionists – Live From Broadway.” A cast of 7—the manipulator, anti-conjuror, trickster, escapologist, inventor, weapon master, and deceptionist—perform death-defying deception, disappearing acts, and wild stunts. They say seeing is believing, but even the shrewdest eye will overlook any slip of hand with these magic stars. 

Audiences are left with gaping mouths and rousing applause with each electrified act of “The Illusionists – Live From Broadway.” Some lucky fans were even selected to join the illusionists on stage, becoming a part of the razzle-dazzle of the show.

While this may not be a traditional musical or play production that is typically found at Segerstrom, the smoke and mirrors of “The Illusionists – Live From Broadway” fill the house with laughter and awe. This magic show is nothing like anything you’ve seen before.

“The Illusionists – Live From Broadway” features world-renowned talent including Yu Ho-Jin, the 2014 “Magician of the Year,” by Academy of Magical Arts, and other international talents like Andrew Basso, the only person in the world to perform Houdini’s famous Water Torture Cell with full visibility.

This magnetic show is produced by Simon Painter, Tim Lawson and MagicSpace Entertainment.
