Boxcar Theatre and Kevin Blake Presents Return Engagement of MAGIC MAN AT THE PALACE THEATER
Boxcar Theatre and illusionist Kevin Blake are announcing a return engagement of MAGIC MAN AT THE PALACE THEATER, August 16 - 24. After its sold-out run this spring, Magic Man is Blake's most shocking and entertaining solo show to date. Performances start at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, August 16 - 17 and 23 - 24. Tickets, $37 - $63, are now on sale at boxcartheatre.org/magic-man.
For Blake, what began as a childhood escape into a world of fantasy and adventure turned into a lifelong fascination with magic and illusion and three acclaimed underground shows. He can read minds, predict the future and see into our collective memories. Drawing inspiration from David Blaine, Penn & Teller and other modern illusionists, he brings magic kicking and screaming into the 21st century. No rabbits, top hats or cutting people in half allowed.
Over the last several years, Blake has opened for Third Eye Blind at the Fillmore, toured with Band of Magicians in New Zealand and Australia, and impressed judges and audiences on NBC's America's Got Talent - and earlier this week The CW's Penn & Teller: Fool Us.
Boxcar Theatre was co-founded in 2005 by Nick A. Olivero, and has produced over 60 plays and musicals including Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Little Shop of Horrors, Clue, three Tennessee Williams plays in repertory and four Sam Shepard plays in repertory. It has also been the home for such companies as Crowded Fire and the Neo-Futurists as well as dozens of other emerging groups over the years. In 2007 the company opened its first venue, the Boxcar Playhouse in San Francisco's SoMa district, and in 2010 their second space, the Boxcar Studios in the Tenderloin. The company is currently located in The Palace Theater which opened in 2016.
