"HIGHLY Recommended! Death and Harry Houdini soars on Dennis Watkins' brilliance as a genuine magician and fearless stuntman...ingeniously written and directed by Nathan Allen.
-Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun Times
After playing to sold-out crowds in Chicago and Miami from January through August of 2012 and again in the summer of 2013, The House Theatre of Chicago is thrilled to bring back this dynamic, award-winning, magic-filled production.
A ringmaster leads us through the events of Harry’s life, all told through stunning magic, poignant dialogue and original music. We travel from the untimely passing of his father, through his first tent shows with his younger brother Theo, meeting his wife Bess, and beginning a journey towards fame on the Vaudeville circuit. All the while, Harry feels Death close on his heels and he won’t rest until he’s conquered him once and for all. Harry will walk on broken glass, swallow razor blades and risk his life in the Water Torture Cell, but will he pull off an escape from Death? Marvel with us as Houdini battles Death once more.
Written and Directed by Nathan Allen. Magic by Dennis Watkins.
