President's Page: Penn & Teller Perform Friday

The famous Penn & Teller will perform on the historic Orpheum stage for the very first time tomorrow night, Friday, September 19th at 8:00 PM.  This engagement signifies a personal achievement for me - I have been working on bringing this fabulous duo to the Orpheum for quite a while. 
Master magicians and brilliant comedians, Penn & Teller are in high demand and therefore have a hectic schedule.  Their show has been a staple in Las Vegas for over 30 years, and each year their limited open dates are gobbled up by a long list of theatres on their waiting list.  I'm proud to say that our turn has finally come, and this is the day that I've have been waiting for!

Tomorrow night, audiences will experience a wondrous evening where comedy meets magic head on.  Penn & Teller have a talent for fooling you even while being refreshingly transparent about their craft.  Their unique take on performance is completely unlike anything audiences have seen on TV or from any other magicians.  Even so, we get a very small taste of Penn & Teller's original style on their shows "Fool Us" on the CW and "Wizard Wars" on SyFy, where they dissect illusions and put other up-and-coming magicians to the ultimate test.  

Don't miss this opportunity to experience a magical night at the Orpheum. There are still a few seats available, but they are disappearing fast.  Is this another trick from the famous duo?  Well, in a way, yes!
