Review – The Illusionists: Magic of the Holidays

For the last several years an enterprising multi-magician group "The Illusionists" have parked for a limited holiday season run on Broadway and then gone out to tour America.  This year it is especially themed to be a Christmas show though the dressing is rather thin and they call this one"Magic of the Holidays."  I've seen … Continue reading Review – The Illusionists: Magic of the Holidays
