It's the most wonderful (and magical) time of the year! This 2019 holiday season will welcome the return of the international touring troupe of magicians known as The Illusionists. Following last year's success, Neil Dorward will direct an all-new cast in a second installment of The Illusionists - Magic of the Holidays, which is set to play a limited engagement at Broadway's Neil Simon Theatre from November 29, 2019 through January 5, 2020.

Known for its rotating cast of expert illusionists, the 2019 cast of Magic of the Holidays is set to include "The Mentalist" Chris Cox, "The Trickster" Paul Dabek, "The Inventor" Kevin James, "The Manipulator" Hyun Joon Kim, "The Transformationalists" Sos & Victoria Petrosyan, and "The Unforgettable" Enzo Weyne, alongside special guests VERBA Shadow Theatre (who enthusiats may have seen previously on "America's Got Talent").

Synopsis: "Back in New York by popular demand for a strictly limited run, this mind-blowing holiday spectacular showcases the jaw dropping talents of seven of the most incredible illusionists on earth. The Illusionists has shattered box office records across the globe and dazzles audiences of all ages with a powerful mix of the most outrageous and astonishing acts ever to be seen on stage. This non-stop show is packed with thrilling and sophisticated magic of unprecedented proportions."
