The Illusionist returns to Broadway with exciting new acts
NEW YORK, Nov. 29 (Xinhua) -- Hit magic show the Illusionist returned to New York's Broadway for its third consecutive holiday season, producer Tim Lawson said on Tuesday.
Featuring nine world class magicians including the up-and-coming duo the Clairvoyants, this year's iteration of the show was subtitled "Turn of the Century" to showcase magic acts that dated back to the 1900s.
The Clairvoyants, an Austrian magician duo who had recently won the first runners-up in the reality show America's Got Talent, wowed the audience by their "mind-reading" tricks. While blind-folded, they correctly guessed the serial number of a bill and birth date of a total stranger.
Other magic acts included a female magician being levitated five meters into the air and another getting out from handcuffs while hanging from a burning rope.
"All of us had our own lifelong successful shows and had taken the best of what each of us do, and put it together," said magician Rick Thomas.
The show will be held in the hundred-year-old Palace Theatre and will run through Jan. 1, 2017.[ Editor: Jiaming ]
