Neil Patrick Harris-Helmed Magic Show NOTHING TO HIDE to Kick Off 10/23 in New York
After numerous extensions and unprecedented attendance due to word-of-mouth that broke box office records at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles, the highly acclaimed show NOTHING TO HIDE will premiere in New York this fall in a limited engagement. Two of the world's most gifted sleight-of-hand artists, Derek DelGaudio (2011 & 2012 Close-up Magician of the Year) and Helder Guimarães (2011 & 2012 Parlor Magician of the Year) star in this uniquely unconventional magic show, directed by Emmy Award winner Neil Patrick Harris. Through a series of diverse and engaging vignettes, NOTHING TO HIDE leads the audience on an amazing and memorable journey into a world of pure astonishment.
NOTHING TO HIDE will play 56 performances only, October 23 through December 8, 2013, in The Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre at The Pershing Square Signature Center (480 West 42nd Street between 9th and 10th Avenues). The production officially opens on November 6, 2013. Tickets are now on sale through Ticket Central via www.ticketcentral.com, by calling 212-279-4200, or in person at Ticket Central Box Office (416 West 42nd Street; Open 12-8pm daily).
"After seeing Derek and Helder perform their amazing set at the Magic Castle I knew they needed to be seen by a wider audience," said director Neil Patrick Harris. "My suspicions were right - It broke the Geffen Theatre's box office records in L.A and extended 5 times! I couldn't be more pleased to now have a discerning New York theater audience get to experience Derek and Helder for themselves. I'm positively proud to present this pair of unprecedented prestidigitators. Say that 5 times fast..."
Fellow magician Penn Jillette had this to say to the Los Angeles Times after seeing NOTHING TO HIDE: "I think they're the two greatest young sleight-of-hand magicians working today, not because they do unbelievable tricks, which they do, and not just because their technique is better than anyone else's, which it is, but because they are charming and not saccharine, funny but not cute, artistic but not pretentious."
NOTHING TO HIDE sold out a four month run at the Geffen Playhouse last year and became an "impossible" ticket, with hundreds of eager fans turned away. The sleight-of-hand performance earned wide acclaim from the critics:
