Penn & Teller Celebrate Their Latest Broadway Opening
Magical duo Penn & Teller celebrate their Broadway opening night tonight, 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.
The new Broadway show will include elements of their ongoing show at the Rio in Las Vegas (where they will return immediately following the New York shows) and classics from their repertoire. The run is presented by Marc Routh, Richard Frankel, Tom Viertel, and Steve Baruch, the same team that presented all of their previous New York productions.
