Synopsis

Harry Houdini is perhaps the most well-known illusionist of the past two centuries, and the passion and beauty that are behind his fame are revealed during his final performance. Told through the memories and voices of those who knew and loved the man for the magic he brought to their lives, The Last Illusion is a touching portrait of the man behind the magic. Derived from the actual facts of Houdini's life, this play is guaranteed to captivate the audience with its unique staging, intimacy and honesty, as well as fidelity to the reality of the man known as the world's greatest magician.

Customer Reviews

"We absolutely loved this script and doing this show. We used it for competition and won several individual, tech, and ensemble awards. You will need at least 2 naturally strong males and 1 naturally strong female, the other characters are not as strong and can be directed/coached to what they need to be. "
Review by April Young, South Platte HS, Big Springs, Neb.
