Presented by Crown Theatre Perth in association with Tim Lawson and Simon Painter

The biggest, boldest and most spectacular magic show ever to be staged in Perth!

“Brain-bendingly spectacular” Daily Telegraph

The Illusionists is a grand and spectacular celebration of the art of magic by the most innovative illusionists working today.  Audiences of this mesmerizing performance will witness a nail-biting game of Russian roulette, jaw-dropping acts of levitation, mind-reading, disappearance and escapes in Perth’s first comprehensive exploration of the genre of magic.

Cutting-edge and contemporary, with not a rabbit or top hat in sight, The Illusionists is revolutionary - bringing the age-old art of magic into the 21st century, and arguably the world’s most successful magic show selling out arenas and theatres through Australia, London’s West End, Europe, Asia, South America, the Middle East - where they left Dubai royalty spellbound - and will be heading to Broadway in late 2014.

The hand-picked cast of international illusionists: The Anti-Conjurer Dan Sperry, The Inventor Kevin James, The Mentalist Philip Escoffey, The Gentleman Mark Kalin, The Escapologist Andrew Basso, The Trickster David Williamson and The Enchantress Jinger Leigh will transform any out-dated notion of what a magic show is.  Individually, they sell out arenas around the world; and, between them, have accumulated over 25 million YouTube hits.

This group of world-class performers builds on the showmanship of the great illusionists of the past, such as Harry Houdini, and updates it with a new contemporary aesthetic including ‘steampunk’ costume design and a bespoke score composed by the LA-based band Z (Noz) lending the genre a theatricality and artistry that has rarely been seen before.
