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

This show was good. It could have been better though. The one glaring issue for me with this production was the son Andrew. I felt like his vocals were weak and his acting was poor. Marcus and the Father wiped the floor with him. It seemed like Andrew was just added to the cast a couple of days before the production because he had no chemistry with the other characters. I hope that this is the case because then the show has promise and I will gladly see it again.
Facing East, based on the play by Carol Lynn Pearson, is a stirring new musical following an upstanding Mormon couple trying to face the suicide of their gay son. When they meet their son's partner, Marcus, they must face a reality long denied and resolve feelings of faith and family.
