Named “Critic’s Choice” by the Los Angeles Times, Smoke and Mirrors - a heartfelt comedy-drama with mind-bending magic - extends by popular demand at a new theatre, THE ROAD, in the historic Lankershim Arts Center in North Hollywood.
Created by and starring noted actor Albie Selznick (Gray’s Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, Dexter etc) and Magician (a lifetime member of Hollywood’s Magic Castle). Smoke and Mirrors is a semi-autobiographical fantastical coming-of-age story about a boy who uses magic to escape reality and face the world after the death of his father.
Smoke and Mirrors has been hailed as “A superb magic theatrical show!” by the L.A. Times, while Stage Scene L.A. said “Don’t miss this mysterious uniquely entertaining show!”. Broadway World raves “A magic show of the highest order…and much much more. Don’t miss Smoke and Mirrors!” More info and tickets at www.smokeandmirrorsmagic.com
Smoke and Mirrors is a poignant yet humorous play packed with magic tricks, elaborate illusions, special effects, improv, audience participation, and spooky Houdini seances. Selznick takes the audience on his healing journey while enlisting the assistance of Trix (a life-sized rabbit), The Oracle (a giant talking orb), and Bessie Houdini, who makes a rather startling appearance!
