What's more Halloween than necromancy, the art of communicating with unseen forces and conjuring spirits and powers? In the spirit (literally!) of the holiday, comedian-magician Derek Hughes will add one more show of Necromance: A Night of Conjuration Oct. 31. His return stint at Dixon Place began Sept. 29 for a run originally scheduled for Oct. 30. Actor- director Chris Bayes directs. Necromance tells stories with humor and magic, while asking the question "What keeps us from not believing in magic -- or ourselves?" Hughes' other works include Circular Ruins, Two Chairs Telling, Conjuring Cubans, Spine: Stripped Bare and Frankenstein.
Tickets are $12 and available by calling (212) 532-1546. Dixon Place is located at 309 East 26 Street at 2nd Avenue.
