THE ILLUSIONISTS Live Broadway Show
DATES: 22-17 January
LOCATION: Regent Theatre 191 Collins St, Melbourne VIC 3000
Australian Illusionist #SamPowers, aka #TheEnigma, will join the Melbourne season of The Illusionists: Described by critics as a new breed of escape artist, Powers will attempt a world first, death defying escape in a nail biting, edge-of-your-seat spectacle that would have Houdini turn in his grave. He will be suspended 30 feet in the air in a straight-jacket under a flaming set of steel jaws, ready to be devoured once a thin rope burns through and the jaws come crashing shut with a half-tonne of brute force. The danger is real and this will be a history making world first for the escape to be presented like this.
Sam Powers has appeared on television before 50 million viewers with live performances in 21 countries across the globe, leaving Hollywood stars like Jamie Fox gasping in amazement. The Illusionists has shattered box office records across the globe, most recently breaking the World Record for a Magic Show, grossing USD$2,978,348.70 (AUD$4.3m) for the week ending December 30, 2018 on Broadway. This beat the previous record set by The Illusionists for the highest grossing week ever at The Marquis Theatre. The show has also broken house records at Broadway’s The St James and Palace Theatres.
