“People have this desire to know that the world is bigger than them. That there are possibilities out there that go beyond our daily lives. People want to experience magic. They want to experience wonder. They want to feel that anything is possible.” - Mark Kalin, Creative Director, The Illusionists

Watch as magic makers from The Illusionists – Turn of the Century, Broadway Illusionist Jim Steinmeyer, and members from the production of The Magic Play at The Goodman Theatre share the history and present nature of magic in the theatre.
