Photo Flash: They've Got Magic to Do- First Look at Broadway-Bound THE ILLUSIONISTS: TURN OF THE CENTURY


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). Check out photos of the Broadway-bound cast in action below!

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."

Last year, THE ILLUSIONISTS - LIVE ON BROADWAY broke the record for the highest weekly box office gross ever at the Neil Simon Theatre and recouped in just over six weeks of performances, making it one of just four shows in the 2015-2016 Broadway season to announce earning back its investment. Simultaneously, a West End engagement of THE ILLUSIONISTS broke sales and attendance records at The Shaftesbury Theatre in London. During the 2014-2015 holiday season, THE ILLUSIONISTS - WITNESS THE IMPOSSIBLE recouped in just over three weeks of performances and set weekly gross records at the Marquis Theatre.
