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

Well produced. The set, the costumes, the multi media interactions, the talented cast,and the smooth direction make this show. The problem was the script itself. The writers seemed too attached to the book, making it for a loooong night. The first act was almost entirely expository. Although the film projections on the upstage wall were clever perfection, they did not forward the story. They only made it longer. Kudos to the actors and director for their efforts and commitment. The writers, however, may want to rethink the important differences between film, prose and theatre.

"Dirk" is one of the most inventive productions I have seen. It is funny and thought provoking with a terrific cast of excellent actors. I have not seen such good acting in a long time. This could become a cult hit and is not to be missed.
Quotes & Highlights
“Hilarious… Douglas Adams’ immensely convoluted novel rendered delightfully stageworthy…an engrossing, often hilarious journey through the natural and supernatural realms!”_ —Daily Variety_
Starring Scot Burklin, Dennis Gersten, Carl J. Johnson, Ambre Low, Tripp Pickell, Daniel R. Vasquez, James K. Ward, and Heather Williams.
A 200-year old Greek pot. An ordinary modern salt cellar lodged inside. This is impossible (or at least inexplicable)! From the mind of Douglas Adams, who brought you The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, comes Dirk, a ghost/horror/detective/time-travel/romantic comedy/epic that begins with a seemingly innocent conjuring trick and ends with the most devastating secret of humankind!
