WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
After years of successfully plying their trade around the world, acclaimed magicians Brian Curry and Mark Phillips have decided their hometown isn't big enough for them both. In Catch Me, these two sleight-of-hand masters battle live on stage for the title of 'Washington DC's Favorite Magician.' In the spirit of a live, reality show contest, the audience selects a different style of magic - escapes, classics, mentalism - for each round of the competition. Unlike a Las Vegas illusion show, Catch Me features parlour magic, skill based sleight-of-hand designed for an audience of 100 or so. It is funny, amazing, and there is a lot of audience participation. When the contest ends, audience members cast their votes and award the coveted 'Golden Wand.' This 5-star rated show, designed with a sophisticated audience in mind, is now in its second year at the beautiful and historic Mayflower Hotel. Catch Me is not recommended for anyone younger than 15.
