Have your mind melted with magic performed by The Illusionists: Direct From Broadway
When it’s done well, magic has the uncanny ability to turn even the most practical and sensible adults in the room into wide-eyed kids again. The older we get, truly eye-popping moments that make us think, “How the heck did they manage to do that?” are hard to come by – but The Illusionists: Direct From Broadway delivers these shockwaves in spades. Returning to QPAC for a strictly limited season from January 9, this band of world-class magicians will leave you with your jaw on the floor.
If you’re after an all-in magic experience with a bit of everything, The Illusionists truly delivers. The show brings with it a powerful mix of tricks that are all as unique as they are impressive, an award-winning formula that has seen it shatter box office records all around the world. Blending multiple disciplines such as large-scale stunts, levitation, mindreading, disappearance and daredevilry, The Illusionists show flows seamlessly from mind-melting deception to laugh-out-loud mischief.
The Illusionists crew is made up of seven super-talented individuals with a skill set that spans all realms of magic. Audiences might be surprised to note that one of the group is a Brisbane native – The Warrior (or Robyn Sharpe to friends) is an ex-gymnast with a crossbow act that toys with serious amounts of danger. The cast is bolstered by multi award-winning mentalist Chris Cox, the daring Leonardo Bruno (also known as The Alchemist), large-scale illusionist Mark Kalin/The Showman, theatrical ‘conjuress’ Jinger Leigh, and long-time futuristic manipulator Florian Sainvet. They are joined by ‘The Trickster’ Paul Dabek, the show’s comic relief and resident enchanter.
