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 funny scenes worked better than the more serious ones - very clever and well written. For those who haven't seen Pulp Fiction in a while, it might help to watch the movie again beforehand (I'd forgotten lots of scenes, which made it a little confusing sometimes).

This was a real hoot! The writing was excellent. It was such fun to hear the story in Elizabethan English. The actors were great; they really were true to the orginal characters in spite of the cumbersome language. And the costumes were inspired.

Directed by Christopher O. Kidder
Featuring Josh Zagoren and Jovan King
An internet sensation when the idea first surfaced, it appeared on numerous blogs and news sites. It has captured the attention of writers from as far away as New Zealand who wanted to take part in the collaborative effort to bring this melding of high culture and pop culture to life.
