About this show

Brought to life right before your eyes by actors, musicians, and puppets, sure to thrill and surprise. As famed escape artist Harry Houdini circles the globe performing one incredible stunt after another, Victor, a young devotee goes through his own rigorous magician's training - locking himself in closets, holding his breath under water and walking into walls. After a chance encounter with his hero, Victor receives a special box that just might contain the secrets of Houdini's great success. The Houdini Box, directed by the formidable visual storyteller Blair Thomas, is a brand-new musical based on Brian Selznick's first book, the story of a boy who receives a mysterious box that may unlock the secrets of Harry Houdini.
