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

It was painful. I do not fault the 3 actors who did a very good job. But there were only 6 of us in the audience. And had there been an intermission most of the audience would not have returned. There are buzzers that are so loud you can't hear yourself think. They go on and off during the whole show. And its all about torture and if the playwrights intention was to make us feel that we were in prison he accomplished it. A very long 70 minutes,
Written by Craig Wright, author of the previous Road hit Lady, nominated for a Drama Desk Award 2009 for Outstanding Play. Imprisoned by a totalitarian regime and mercilessly tortured for unknown crimes, Wallace and Valdez live without hope of escape or release. When an enigmatic new prisoner arrives and begins communicating in code, both men develop new relationships to each other, their captors, and themselves. The Unseen is a darkly humorous examination of faith in an uncertain world.
