Photo Flash: The Magic Returns! First Look at PENN & TELLER ON BROADWAY

Penn Jillette and Teller make their long-awaited return to the Broadway stage this summer with Penn & Teller On Broadway, now in performances at the Marquis Theatre (46th Street between Broadway and 8th). The production opens this Sunday, July 12 and will play a strictly limited six-week engagement through August 16. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the duo in action below!

Thirty years after their New York premiere and 40 years after they first started as a team, Penn & Teller On Broadway is a rare opportunity for New Yorkers and tourists to see the popular duo; they will immediately return to their record-breaking Las Vegas run at The Rio at the end of the Broadway engagement. The Broadway engagement includes both elements of their Las Vegas show and classics from their repertoire. They were recently voted the 2015 Best Magicians for the eighth time in the Las Vegas Review-Journal's "Best of Las Vegas" poll.

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. The New York Times has called them "a matchless team of self-mocking sorcerers" and called their show "an iconoclastic assault on the temple of magic." WNEW-TV said "If there's any justice they should rot in hell. Until then, see them."

Penn & Teller On Broadway is produced by Marc Routh, Richard Frankel, Tom Viertel and Steve Baruch, the same team that produced their New York stage debut, and each of their subsequent Broadway and off-Broadway engagements, Penn & Teller; Penn & Teller: The Refrigerator Tour; and Penn & Teller Rot in Hell.
