Description

Philippe Petit is known as the perpetrator of the most infamous high-wire caper in the world. As the man who walked a wire between the Twin Towers [110 stories above the ground], Petit was the subject of last year’s Oscar-winning documentary __Man On Wire. __Now, he comes down to earth to display his many unusual talents on the Irvine Barclay Theatre stage.  

A beguiling evening of storytelling, juggling and magic, Petit shares his experiences as a writer, pickpocket, barn builder, bullfighter, engineer and Renaissance man. It’s an entertaining night about creativity and achieving the impossible from the man who pulled off what Time Magazine dubbed “the artistic crime of the century.”
