Albie_Smoke_Mirrors_rsz_ex2a1619-282x300Back by popular demand!  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 a life-sized ‘Rabbit’, ‘The Oracle’ (a giant talking orb), and Bess Houdini, who makes a rather startling appearance!  Written and Performed by Albie Selznick and an extraordinary cast of conjurers, Directed by David Schweizer. Produced by Michelle Grant and Danielle Gautier.

Created by and starring noted actor Albie Selznick (CastleGrey’s AnatomyDesperate HousewivesDexter, 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.

Named “Critic’s Choice” by the Los Angeles Times as “a superb theatrical magic show,” Smoke and Mirrors—a heartfelt comedy-drama with mind-bending magic—returns to The Road on Lankershim in the historic Lankershim Arts Center in North Hollywood. Previews Begin Sept 5th, the Smoke and Mirrors opens Sept 13th.

The LA Weekly raves, If you’ve forgotten the childlike joy and sublime wonderment of seeing magic performed, Albie Selznick’s theatrical show is an enchanting reminder. The accomplished actor-magician puts on a bewildering tour de force that has more “how did he do that” flashes than can be counted! GO!

Backstage says, Smoke and Mirrors is about magic, wonder, and spectacle. You’ll leave feeling spellbound by Selznick’s display, scratching your head and thinking, “How did he do that?”
