Illusionist and Improvisor

“I’ve been performing magic since I was 11,” explains the show’s creator, Andrew Brimstone. “It’s been an on-again, off-again relationship, but it’s been a huge part of my life. Robert Houdin famously said: ‘A conjuror is an actor playing the part of a magician.’ In creating this show, I wanted to explore this idea and represent various points of an actor’s career as an illusionist. Each magician in this show represents a period in my life: seeing my first magic show, performing magic for kids’ birthday parties, getting way too into card tricks, experimenting with mentalism... Magic can be considered a lie, but in this show I use it to reveal truths about me, and, hopefully, about performing itself.”
