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

I'm not a huge fan of absurd theater. That said, I thought this was really well done. I have seen Rhinoceros before and read the script, and I got much more from this performance. It was also very funny, which I've never really gotten before. The company that puts this on is great, which is why I went to see the show. If you like absurd theater, you will love this show.
By Eugene Ionesco

“I am alone and they are all together.”
Rhinoceroses are loose in the streets. Berenger does not care. While the citizenry fails to make heads (horns) or tail out of an increasingly chaotic situation, our hero begins to realize that everybody around him is gradually changing into pachyderms. Considered by many to be Ionesco’s finest play, Rhinoceros tracks one man’s lonely efforts to hang onto his humanity, while everyone around him abandons theirs.
