The Magic Play

World-class magic and a deeply human story of loss and love come together to create one astonishing theatrical experience.

Though a good magician must always be in control of his show, his offstage life may be as fragile as a house of cards. When a rising young magician must take the stage just hours after his partner has left him, his performance begins to unravel. Overcome with heartbreak, he must accept that the inherent tricks and deceptions he uses to dazzle his audience are the very things that drove his lover away. Critically acclaimed magician, illusion designer and actor Brett Schneider stars in a mind-blowing spectacle that combines the allure of a live magic show with the poignant punch of Chicago theater.

Recommended for ages 13 and up.

A world premiere co-commission with Roundabout Theatre Company
