Albie Selznick, a lifetime member of The Magic Castle and an accomplished actor whose credits include Dexter, Desperate Housewives and Grey's Anatomy, moves his popular show to North Hollywood. A Los Angeles Times Critics' Choice event, Smoke and Mirrors is an engaging mix of comedy, theater and magic that finds Selznick telling his own story of facing his deepest fears, bonding with legend Harry Houdini and achieving membership in an exclusive inner circle of magicians, weaving it with some truly astonishing illusions. Selznick was a co-founder of The Mums, a popular circus act in the '80s and '90s that opened for Devo and Duran Duran and counted David Bowie and Sting among their fans. A strolling magician will perform among the audience before the show. Learn More

This show, in every way, was a beautiful experience. The performances are layered wonderfully with talented actors and a keen director. The standout performance (in a show without a single poor one) was the writer's (who plays the lead), whose subtlety and reserve in the role was flawless. Her scenes with the character of 'Charlie' being the highlight of the evening. To continue with her praise, the writing was exellent, with moments of real grace and poetry. I will be returning to see this again, and I hope very much, that others will too.
The setting is 1950s Ireland. The Donnelly sisters have just lost their mother, and both are ready for their lives to begin. Kathleen teeters on the eve of her wedding, torn between her sweet-tempered fiance and a dashing young actor. Eveline struggles with conflicting priorities: a sense of responsibility for her lonely widowed father Peter, a coveted university scholarship, and emerging feelings for a new man in her life. When their mother makes a ghostly appearance to lend a supernatural hand, the stage is set for conflict—tempers flair and long-kept secrets are revealed. In the end, Kathleen must make her choice, Peter must make his peace, and Eveline must discover her wings to fly.
