Just yesterday, Ben Kallos, Council Member of the 5th District, honored Penn & Teller for their 40th anniversary of inspiring and thrilling audiences. The duo has a long and storied history entertaining New Yorkers and deep roots in New York City. Penn & Teller have had two off-Broadway and three Broadway engagements. Their first off-Broadway appearance in 1985 at the Westside Arts Theatre put them on the map. They first played Broadway in 1987. PENN & TELLER ON BROADWAY marks their return to New York 30 years after their premiere here and is a bona fide hit; it closes this Sunday, August 16.

Their numerous honors include an Obie Award, an Emmy, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame - and now a Proclamation from the city of New York.

Tickets for the remaining performances are available through www.ticketmaster.com, 877-250-2929 and at The Marquis Theatre box office (46th Street between Broadway and 8th). Penn & Teller will immediately return to their record-breaking Las Vegas run at The Rio.

Penn & Teller's return to Broadway, thirty years after their New York premiere and 40 years after they first started as a team, was received with both critical and popular acclaim. The New York Times called them "Ingenious!" and The Associated Press called them "As subversive and fresh as ever!" Time Out New York called them "Enchanting and wondrous. They'll blow your mind!" The Hollywood Reporter says "Catch them before they disappear."

The hugely popular duo was recently voted the 2015 Best Magicians for the eighth time in the Las Vegas Review-Journal's "Best of Las Vegas" poll. The Broadway engagement includes both elements of their Las Vegas show and classics from their repertoire.

Penn & Teller made their stunning off-Broadway debut in 1985 and first played Broadway in 1987. Following a national tour, they returned to Broadway in 1991 with The Refrigerator Tour which then moved off-Broadway. Their last New York stage appearance was a week-long engagement at the Beacon Theatre in 2000. Their numerous honors include an Obie Award, an Emmy, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
