Illusionary Show ABRACADABRA Coming to Weill Center
Five World-Class Magicians/Illusionists/Escape Artists/Sleight-Of-Hand Specialists and more to present show at Weill Center in Sheboygan on Saturday, October 12
Sheboygan, WI – August 12, 2019 – The Co-Creator of Broadway’s “The Illusionists” franchise will present an all-new Illusionary show – ABRACADABRA Live on Tour, on Saturday, October 12 at the Weill Center in downtown Sheboygan. The show features five world-class magicians/illusionists/
escape artists/sleight-of-hand specialists, a supporting cast of dancers/visual artists, and five macaws and cockatoos who will appear from nowhere and fly above the audience, ABRACADABRA’s format is family-friendly and for all ages.
The five illusionists will include:
Anti-conjuror Dan Sperry – Hailed as the most in-demand and “Relevant Modern Illusionist of This Generation,” Sperry has starred on Broadway and network TV. One of the top 10 most-searched on YouTube, Sperry has been described as “Marilyn Manson Meets David Copperfield.” He presents magic for people who love magic shows but an even better show for people who hate magic shows.
Grand illusionist Brett Daniels – Co-creator and original front man of “The Illusionists” before it came to America, Sheboygan will have a first-look at new and exciting illusions created by this world-champion magician. He was awarded “Magician of the Year,” “Entertainer of the Year,” “Best of the Best Grand Illusionist,” “Illusionist of the Millennium” and was star of NBC’s special “The World’s Greatest Magic,” Houdini – Unlocking The Secrets;” and ABC’s “Champions of Magic.” Daniels was co-producer of Criss Angels’ SUPERNATURALISTS.
Erika Weiss – Weiss took her name from the king of handcuffs, Appleton’s own Harry Houdini, who was born Erik Weiss. She is reimagining the typical “restraints” (pun intended) of the traditional male escape artist and blending it with modern theatrics. Weiss will present a new act, “Lady in the Water” along with emotionally jarring feats of mental, physical and psychological challenges in her original groundbreaking escape act.
Matthew Teague – Previously an underground artist sought out by high end corporate and casino clients, the Weill Center audience will understand what everyone’s talking about. “Mind-blowing” has been used to describe this young master of sleight of hand.
Machiavelli – From Serbia, this “ghost” – known and whispered as a “myth” by those who know the magic underground, Machiavelli is both a musical prodigy and a master illusionist. ABRACADABRA is the first public show of this rumored master.
World champion grand illusionist Brett Daniels, in partnership with legendary rock and Broadway promoter, Arny Granat’s Grand Slam Productions will stage magic and illusionary acts that have drawn industry raves. ABRACADABRA features “The Best of the Best” presenting the latest and greatest magic and illusion, including Blackbird, Mighty Wings, the Goddess levitation, Machiavelli’s mystery and many more; as well as world premiere illusion acts. Select children attending the Weill Center show will be invited onstage to join in the magic and fun.
