After playing sold-out crowds in Chicago and Miami from January through August of 2012, multiple extensions were not enough to fill ticket demand for this dynamic, award-winning, magic-filled production. The full cast and design team return for a full 8 weeks at our Chopin Theatre home in Chicago.
A ringmaster leads us through the events of Harry’s life, all told through stunning magic, poignent dialogue and original music. We travel from the untimely passing of his father, through his first tent shows with his younger brother Theo, meeting his wife Bess, and beginning a journey towards fame on the Vaudeville circuit. All the while, Harry feels Death close on his heels and he won’t rest until he’s conquered him once and for all. Harry will walk on broken glass, swallow razor blades and risk his life in the Water Torture Cell, but will he pull off an escape from Death?
Marvel with us as Houdini battles Death once more.
Tickets are currently available for all performances through August 11
