Chicago has always been full of magic and at one point the magicians of Chicago became famous for their particular style. It's an up-close and personal kind of magic that doesn't have the grandiose spectacle that other acts bring to the table, but is every bit as astonishing. In some ways, it's much more fun since the audience is part of the show. The Magic Cabaret brings that golden age of magic, mystery and mischief back to to Chicago audiences hungry for the unusual. In every show, PT Murphy and David Parr present classic conjuring in the Windy City style, using every day objects to bring their stories of old-time magic to life. With an emphasis on audience participation, and liberal doses of humor, spookiness and surprises, the magic cabaret is actually fun for everyone, old or young. Learn More

The world according to David Ives is a very strange place indeed. His plays create a near perfect inspection of the English language – and of the audience’s aptitude for perplexity and joy. Ives’s characters are thrust into black holes called “Philadelphias,” where the simplest desires are uproariously frustrated. Chimps named Milton, Swift, and Kafka are locked in a room and made to write no less a masterpiece than Hamlet. And a con man peddles courses in an invented language in which “welcome” translates as “velcro” and “fraud” comes out as “freud.”
