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
Quotes & Highlights
- "A frolicsome jaunt through a continuum of space, time, history, geography, feminism and fashion… a thoroughly serendipitous journey.” --<em>New York Times</em>
Remy Bumppo Theatre Company presents On the Verge, or The Geography of Yearning, a fanciful comedy about three women explorers. Brave, willing and yearning to see it all, these women enthusiastically begin their trek to Terra Incognita in 1888, only to discover that they are adrift in time. The playwright crafts a linguistic labyrinth for his heroines as they navigate through uncharted territory populated with pop culture and possibility.
