Five world-class illusionists conjure up this mind-bending theatrical production, presenting daring large-scale illusions, close-up magic and mindreading feats. Audiences will witness illusions with supercars, an escape from Houdini’s water torture cell, a mind-blowing prediction, levitation high above the stage and a grand finale light years beyond pulling a rabbit out of a hat. The international cast includes Alex McAleer and childhood friends Young & Strange from Britain, Kayla Drescher from the United States, and Fernando Velasco from Mexico and the United States. Between them, they’ve amassed more than 30 million views online.
