The Magnificents

I plan on catching this show next Thursday (1/31). It just opened and so far the reviews have been pretty good. Tickets are only $14.50 with fees through goldstar for that date and are general admission. We can meet up at the theater or someplace close by around 7pm so that we can grab seats together. And if anyone is up for it we can grab drinks/food at Bangers & Lace or some other place in the neighborhood after the show.

The Magnificents combines the art of illusion with a theatrical story written by and starring House Theatre of Chicago magician Dennis Watkins. Watkins revisits his deeply personal script, originally produced in 2007, with renewed vision and more magic for 2013. It's the story of The Magnificents, an extraordinary family that brings magical entertainment to adoring audiences. Over time, however, their ardent fans have grown older and faded away, leaving their seats empty and the theater hushed. The aging magician and one-time star of the show takes a young boy under his wing and teaches him all his tricks, and much more. This touching story of the legacy we can leave before we let go is told in spectacular style, with aerial circus arts, film components and stunning feats of magic, including levitation.
