Why Watch The Illusionists
The Illusionists has been running on Broadway since Christmas 2014, albeit with a different cast. Produced by Simon Painter since the original production was showcased at Sydney in 2012, The Illusionists has gone on to become one of the highest-grossing shows on Broadway. A star-studded cast of talented illusionists will be seen on stage, performing a vast array of tricks to enthrall the audience.
Once a budding pianist, Shin Lim was forced to give up from becoming a piano performer as a result of developing carpal tunnel syndrome. The influence of his roots in music, however, continues to live on in his magic acts.
Darcy Oake, of Britain’s Got Talent fame, also appears in the show and performs some death-defying stage illusions.
Adam Trent is a well-known magician whose 10-episode TV series, The Road Trick, is airing across the world, and is a long-time performer on Broadway who also features on The Illusionists.
Chloe Crawford, also of Britain’s Got Talent fame, and one of the up-and-coming magicians currently, sets fire on stage with her energetic performance.
Colin Cloud, who dubs himself a forensic mind reader, will enthrall the audience with his acute observation skills that could only be rivaled only by Sherlock Holmes.
All five magicians bring something different to the stage, giving you a wonderful confluence of all styles of entertainment that includes sleight of hand and close-up magic acts, large-scale stage illusions, and mind-reading, infused with elements of comedy and humor.
