SMOKE AND MIRRORS Begins 1/18 at Road Theatre Company
Due to overwhelming demand, Smoke and Mirrors - a heartfelt comedy-drama with mind-bending magic that has been named "Critics Choice" in the Los Angeles Times - will be moving from the Promenade Playhouse in Santa Monica to the Road Theatre Company in NoHo.
The new run begins previews on Friday, January 18 and opens on Saturday, January 26. It runs Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, through March 18.
Created by and starring noted actor (Gray's Anatomy, Desperate Housewives) and magician (a lifetime member of Hollywood's Magic Castle), Albie Selznick, Smoke and Mirrors is a semi-autobiographical, fantastical coming-of-age story about a boy who uses magic to escape reality and face the world after the death of his father.
Smoke and Mirrors has been hailed as "a superb theatrical magic show" by the L.A. Times, while Stage Scene L.A. said "don't miss this mysterious, uniquely entertaining show." Broadway World called it "a fabulous show for kids of all ages...don't miss Smoke and Mirrors."
Smoke and Mirrors is a poignant yet humorous play packed with magic tricks, elaborate illusions, special effects, improv, audience participation, and spooky Houdini seances. Selznick takes the audience on his healing journey while enlisting the assistance of Trix (a life-sized rabbit), The Oracle (a giant talking orb), and Harry Houdini's wife, Bessie.
During the journey, Selznick pulls off several remarkable illusions and mystifying sleight-of-hand displays, with assistance from a cast that includes Brandy LePlante, Yanna Fabian, Cody Bushee, and Rob Martinez.
Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. at The Road Theatre Company @Lankershim Arts Center, 5108 Lankershim Blvd. in North Hollywood.
Tickets for all performances are $34. To purchase tickets or for more information, visit www.smokeandmirrorsmagic.com or www.tix.com or call 800-595-4849.
