There’s no disappearing act here! The Off-Broadway play A Simulacrum has been extended, with tickets available through July 9.

Lucas Hnath’s A Simulacrum, starring sleight-of-hand artist Steve Cuiffo, explores the behind-the-scenes process of creating magic. The play is a collaboration between Cuiffo and Hnath, who also serves as the director, and features magic tricks.

New York Theatre Guide’s four-star review reads, “Like a good magic routine, A Simulacrum begins with something ordinary and ends with something astounding.”

The production features scenic design by Louisa Thompson, costume design by Qween Jean, lighting design by Tyler Micoleau, and sound design by Mikhail Fiksel.
