David Copperfield - An Intimate Of Grand Illusion
Friday, October 9 & Saturday, October 10
Fox Theatre

True to its title, ‘Grand Illusion' is the logical and incredible evolution of this conjurer's art. Copperfield's goal in ‘Grand Illusion' is to take ones' dreams (and maybe a few nightmares) and make them become reality using his state of the art wizardry. "For magic to be relevant," explains Copperfield, "it has to evolve so it keeps up with, or even surpasses, the best film and theatre. In the cinema the audience watches the characters' dreams come true." In ‘Grand Illusion,' the audiences get to watch their dreams come true, live, before their very eyes and in three dimensions. What's your Dream (or Nightmare)?
