Penn & Teller return to Broadway this Summer
Penn & Teller will return to Broadway this Summer to play a six-week limited engagement at the Marquis Theatre. Performances begin on 7 July 2015 and conclude on 16 August 2015. An official opening night will be announced at a later date.
Penn Jillette released a statement saying:
“When I was born in Greenfield, Massachusetts, I felt I should have been in NYC, and when I moved there I was home. We loved being on Broadway. We love doing our show in Vegas, but even after all this time in Vegas... well, coming back to Broadway feels like we're coming home. Our hearts never left. Do they make Elmo costumes in my size?”
For 40 years Penn & Teller have defied labels - and at times physics and good taste - by redefining the genre of magic and inventing their own very distinct niche in comedy. This Broadway engagement will include both elements of their Las Vegas show and classics from their repertoire.
The show will be produced on Broadway by Marc Routh, Richard Frankel, Tom Viertel and Steve Baruch, who have thus far produced all of the duo's Broadway and off-Broadway engagements.
