The Magic Play

April 12th to May 7th @ Olney Theatre Center

Andrew Hinderaker present The Magic Play, a remarkable story that combines vivid theatricality, profound emotions and in this case, a touch of true theater magic. Brett Schneider plays a talented magician who has risen to the top by maintaining absolute control over his performances — as well as his love life. But when his lover forces him to confront his fears, along with his washed-up magician father, his act might never be the same. Watch as card houses fall apart and reassemble, hearts transform into clubs and the mystical powers of performance take hold.

TICKETS

The Magic Play is recommended for ages 16+ for mature themes, strong language and intimate situation. This show is not appropriate for children.
