The Illusionists are bringing their mystifying magic to theaters across North America in a city near you. The famed show is vastly different from any other, due to its rotating cast of characters, each of which specialize in a certain area of the art of illusion. The featured magicians are known strictly on stage as a vague persona, including The Inventor, The Trickster, The Manipulator, and The Escapologist. The popularity of the act has spawned a second production, The Illusionists: Turn of the Century, which is currently performing for a limited engagement at Broadway’s Palace Theatre. Don’t just take our word that this is one of the top magic acts around, see for yourself! Here are the Illusionist acts you have to see to believe.
