Bid To Meet THE ILLUSIONISTS' Daredevil Jonathan Goodwin, Support Education Renaissance of Nevada

British born daredevil and escape artist Jonathan Goodwin, one of the nine world-class performers featured when THE ILLUSIONISTS return to Broadway this November for their new show, THE ILLUSIONISTS - TURN OF THE CENTURY, is widely considered one of the most creative, skilled, and frankly crazy stunt performers in the world. Goodwin has been hanged, buried alive, hung by his toes from helicopters, burned at the stake, attacked by sharks, and even sewn up inside a dead cow to name just a few of the terrifying and insane stunts his mother wishes he hadn't tried.

Charitybuzz's new auction offers a chance for two people to meet Jonathan Goodwin backstage after being amazed by THE ILLUSIONISTS at the Lunt-Fontanne Theater.

The winning bid will benefit The Education Renaissance of Nevada, a non-profit organization that creates live events-concerts, lectures, classes, seminars, performances-that stimulate young people in Northern Nevada to see literature, math, art, science, music and critical thought as viable and exciting disciplines to pursue.

THE ILLUSIONISTS will return to Broadway for the third consecutive holiday season for a limited engagement, playing November 25, 2016 through January 1, 2017, this year at the Lunt-Fontanne Theater (205 W 46th St).

Featuring world class illusionists handpicked from across the globe, Broadway's holiday smash hit, THE ILLUSIONISTS, returns to New York City with TURN OF THE CENTURY, a new show designed to transport audiences back to the golden age of magic. THE ILLUSIONISTS - TURN OF THE CENTURY is centered in a time when conjurers were the true rock stars of the day. Showcasing the origins of some of the greatest and most dangerous illusions ever built, the show also unveils never-before-seen experiments drawn from a treasure trove of long-forgotten mysteries.

Audiences are invited to discover first-hand the spectacles that transformed Stage Entertainment over 100 years ago with a cast of world famous magicians playing incredible characters, each of whom embodies a magical great of the past.

"Returning to New York during the holidays has become an annual tradition," said producer Simon Painter. "This year we are really shaking things up by giving visitors an unforgettable new production that shines the spotlight on what was truly a magical time in history."
