The Illusionists: Magic of the Holidays (2018) on Broadway Background

What’s The Illusionists: Magic of the Holidays (2018) Like?
The show is a mix of magic tricks, uptempo music and a lot of "wow, how did they do that?" moments. Often called Magic's Cirque du Soleil", the show borrows heavily from magic superstars like David Copperfield, David Blaine, Lance Burton, Shin Lim, David Devant, Apollo Robbins, Penn and Teller and even the legendary Harry Houdini. This Broadway version of the show is attempting to leverage some holiday spirit, but given that anything with the term "Holiday" in the title fails to perform well on Broadway may indicate that this version of the show may be less than compelling. The illusions and the magicians are subject to change without notice, so if there are any contract negotiations going on, be prepared to see a different set of magicians than you anticipated.
This is the second time that this show is headed into the Marquis theatre on Broadway, where they had a successful inaugural run back in 2014.
This show is a huge family attraction and people are bound to be in awe of all the amazing tricks and stunts these seven cast members perform.
