The Illusionists—Magic of the Holidays, a new installment of the touring magic spectacular, plays Broadway’s Marquis Theatre November 23 through December 30.
The Illusionists previously entertained New York audiences with three consecutive Broadway outings: Witness the Impossible (2014–2015), Live on Broadway (2015–2016), and Turn of the Century (2016–2017).
This year’s family-friendly show promises illusions, close-up magic, mentalism, escapes, and technological spectacle performed by entertainers who have captivated audiences worldwide. Performers include Darcy Oake (The Grand Illusionist), Adam Trent (The Futurist), Colin Cloud (The Deductionist), Shin Lim (The Manipulator), Chloé Crawford (The Sorceress), and the dance group Light Balance.
In addition to creative producer Simon Painter, the creative team for Magic of the Holidays includes executive producer Tim Lawson and director Neil Dorward.
The Marquis was previously home to the Jimmy Buffett musical Escape to Margaritaville. The musical adaptation of Tootsie, starring Tony nominee Santino Fontana, will open at the venue in April 2019, while Celebrity Autobiography will take over the theatre every Monday November 26–December 17.
