The Illusionists: Magic of the Holidays (2019) on Broadway Background

The Illusionists - Magic of the Holidays is the travelling magic troupe’s fifth holiday show on Broadway since their debut in 2012. The production features a unique casting system, in which there is no staple list of illusionists, but rather a rotating cast of world-renowned magicians for each performance. This makes the performances never feel stale and gives the troupe the chance to vary the types of magic that are showcased. The 2019 holiday special event features seven of the world’s newest illusionists – namely, Kevin James , Chris Cox, Paul Dabek, Hyun Joon Kim, Enzo Weyne and Sos and Victoria Petrosyan. Each of the magicians have their own accolades and specialty in magic. James was awarded the “Parlour Magician of the Year" in 2003. Cox is a comedy-magician type, who auditioned for America's Got Talent in 2016. Dabek is a witty stage performer who is known for his devilish and lively charm. Kim is a master of the sleight-of-hand magic and a self-proclaimed master manipulist. Weyne is a French illusionist who puts a European spin on everything. The Petrosyans are a married couple and they are quick-change artists who went on to the quarter finals on America's Got Talent in 2016.

What’s The Illusionists: Magic of the Holidays (2019) Like?

The Illusionists - Magic of the Holidays is a performance that is both perplexing and yet captivating at the same time. With a mix of thrilling visuals, uptempo music and many "wow!" moments, as the magicians borrow heavily from some of the great magic superstars. The show plays off other magicians such as; Lance Burton, David Blaine and Penn and Teller with many of the tricks inspired by each of them. Throughout the entire show the Illusionists make objects appear out of nowhere, and they do this without any notice. They also use willing audience members to help them perform some of their most complicated stunts, but some New York City audiences are wise to the ruse. This show has been called Magic's “Cirque du Soleil" by critics and this version of the Broadway show attempts to incorporate the holiday spirit into their Winter wonder-land theme.

Is The Illusionists: Magic of the Holidays (2019) Good for Kids?
