Verso - 2016 - Off-Broadway

One of the world’s top close-up magic artists, Helder Guimaraes, returns to New York City with a brand new show following the acclaimed, sold-out run of Nothing to Hide.

Intimate and enigmatic, witty and unorthodox, Verso is Helder's most daunting journey into the impossible yet. Bear witness as he pushes the very limits of magic, and challenges just how much you’re willing to accept what your eyes assume to be true.

Don't blink. There are lies in every reality. Truth in every deception. What is real? What is impossible? What do you believe?


Running Time: Two hours with one intermission

New World Stages Stage V
