The limited run will continue through Aug. 16.

The team, which consists of the brash, hulking Penn Jillette and the silent, diminutive on-named Teller, made their first big splash Off-Broadway in 1985, and on Broadway in 1987 with their show Penn & Teller, followed by a 1991 engagement titled Penn & Teller: The Refrigerator Tour and another Off-Broadway appearance, Penn & Teller Rot in Hell.

They made another Broadway appearance in 2001, filling in for a week at Christmastime as the Narrators of the revival of The Rocky Horror Show.

The team has toured extensively, including a record-breaking 14-year run at the Rio in Las Vegans, a feature film "Penn & Teller Get Killed," and a series of TV shows including "Penn & Teller Tell a Lie," "Penn & Teller: Fool Us" and Penn & Teller: Bullshit!," the latter involving the team's using their knowledge of illusions to debunk common misconceptions, cons and conspiracy theories. It was nominated for 13 Emmy Awards.
