How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Inventively staged and a unique opportunity to see beautiful illusions and classic escapes up close and personal in a narrative that provides an appropriate context to appreciate the beauty, invention and timelessness of "Houdini's magic" from the turn of the century.The cast is talented and energetic, led by an engaging Dennis Watkins who incites the audience's fear for him as he undertakes Houdini's feats right before their eyes. As I saw this in preview, it ran a bit long, but only a churl would complain. A program would have been helpful with a little more background on Houdini and his career, but interested audiences can look it up in Wikipedia either before or after the performance.
