Teller said: 'When our own magic has gone wrong, we were miserable, but when it's somebody else, it's hilarious, so this seems like the perfect project for Mischief and us. We're huge fans of theirs, so collaborating with them was a privilege and an astonishment. Any idea we'd pitch them, right on the spot they'd turn it around and make us double over laughing. We're very proud of the results and hope you enjoy the show.'

J.J. Abrams said: 'I am a nearly life-long fan of Penn & Teller and working with the Mischief Theatre Company has been pure joy. I expect all that to change with this new production.'
