Named a Top Ten Show to Watch For in 2012 by the Chicago Tribune.
As famed escape artist Harry Houdini circles the globe performing one incredible stunt after another, Victor, a young devotee goes through his own rigorous magician’s training — locking himself in closets, holding his breath under water and walking into walls. After a chance encounter with his hero, Victor receives a special box that just might contain the secrets of Houdini’s great success.
Directed by famed large-scale spectacle and puppetry artist Blair Thomas, The Houdini Box is a musical adaptation of the popular children’s book of the same name by Brian Selznick, famous for The Invention of Hugo Cabret, the basis of the hit movie Hugo.
Recommended for children ages 5 and older.
The show runs one hour with no intermission.
