The Illusionists, following their record-breaking engagement at the Marquis Theatre last year, will return to Broadway this holiday season for a limited run at the Neil Simon Theatre. Performances are scheduled to run from November 19-January 3, 2016.

Directed by Neil Dorward, the magic show features seven of the world's greatest magicians. The Illusionists' return engagement will include three new "magical superheroes" who will contribute new stunts and sleight-of-hand acts. The group, including Jonathan Goodwin (The Daredevil), James More (The Deceptionist) and Raymond Crowe (The Unusualist), are set to join returning audience favorites Yu Ho-Jin (The Manipulator), Jeff Hobson (The Trickster), Dan Sperry (The Anti-Conjurer) and Adam Trent (The Futurist).

"We are thrilled to be returning to Broadway this holiday season where we were so warmly welcomed just a year ago," said producer Simon Painter. "Audiences are in store for even more astounding and extreme illusions and tricks."

Tim Lawson serves as executive producer.
