Magical duo Penn & Teller celebrated their Broadway opening night on July 12, at the Marquis Theatre. The pair began their latest New York engagement on July 7, and will continue in the Big Apple through August 16.

Penn & Teller made their off-Broadway debuts in 1985 and first played Broadway in 1987 (at the theater now known as the Walter Kerr). Their second Broadway engagement, 1991's Refrigerator Tour, played the Eugene O'Neill. Along with a weeklong run at the Beacon Theatre in 2000, their most recent New York stage appearances came during a stint as the Narrator in the 2001 Broadway revival of The Rocky Horror Show.

Guests at the opening-night festivities included author Salman Rushdie, talk-show host Dick Cavett, actor/comedians Gilbert Gottfried and Judy Gold, Blondie legend Debbie Harry, and more. Check out TheaterMania's photos in the gallery below.
