Hollywood, Calif. – Direct from a completely sold out season at the Sydney Opera house in Australia, where the show sold over 3 million dollars of tickets in 8 days, William Morris Endeavour presents the most important live magic show currently touring the World, “The Illusionists”.

Seven of the most incredible illusionists on earth enact mind bending acts of magic and Illusion, many of which have never been seen before.  Each Illusionist is a master in their own field.   With an assembled cast of 20 sidekicks, they will perform a powerful mix of their most outrageous and unbelievable acts.  Collectively, these performers have been seen by millions of people around the World and this production showcases their incredible talents together on stage for the very first time.

Audiences will witness jaw dropping acts of grand illusion, levitation, mind-reading, disappearance and for the first time ever in history, a full view water torture escape.  Performed by the acclaimed escapologist Andrew Basso, he will hold his breath for over 4 minutes whilst attempting to escape from his underwater cell. This group of world-class performers take their cue from the showmanship of the great illusionists of the past – such as Harry Houdini – and pair it with a new and updated contemporary aesthetic, whose set and costume design lend the genre a theatricality and artistry that has rarely been seen before.

This critically acclaimed production has played to sold out crowds in Australia, Asia, South America, and is currently in the middle of its World Tour.
