The Magic Play


On the U.S. Bank Main Stage
By Andrew Hinderaker
Directed by Halena Kays
with magic created by Brett Schneider

A theater is a realm of illusion. So is a magic show. Playwright Andrew Hinderaker mashes these traditions together with alluring results. The Magic Play follows a young magician trying to get through a live show just hours after his partner has left him. As the performance progresses, he confronts the fact that the spectacular tricks that impress people on stage don’t serve him as well when it comes to building truthful personal relationships. This mesmerizing new play questions the extent to which we must be honest with ourselves in order to be so with those we love. "The real magic in this engrossing theatrical hybrid — now receiving a meticulously polished world premiere at the Goodman Theatre, in what is unquestionably a Broadway-ready production — involves a very different bag of tricks altogether." —Chicago Sun-Times
