Why See The Illusionists?

You Won't Believe Your Eyes!

The biggest selling magic show in the world returns to North America with a brand new line-up of tricksters, conjurers and illusionists. Guaranteed to astound, baffle and entertain, this magic spectacular has just played to sell out crowds in Australia and is embarking on an extensive North American and Canadian tour. On a scale unlike anything you've ever seen before, this show is packed full of death defying stunts and set pieces that bring the art of magic right up to date.

The Tricksters

A Magnificent 7-style line up of masters of their art, The Illusionists all have their speciality. Topping the bill is The Anti-Conjurer, infamous for his macabre sense of humour and body-shock style of magic. Billed as Marilyn Manson meets David Copperfield, The Anti-Conjurer first grabbed the world's attention with his 2010 appearance on America's Got Talent, which involved a very unusual use of dental floss.

Among the other Illusionists are The Trickster, an old style Vegas showman, and The Escapologist, for whom no shackle is too tight. Catch them all when The Illusionists hit Oriental Theatre in Chicago, IL, Closed February 26, 2017
