Come celebrate the start of our Summer of Magic by shaking hands with Harry Houdini—that is, if his arms aren’t stuck in a straitjacket or handcuffs! Portrayed by Duffy Hudson, Houdini shares his incredible life story, performs illusions with playing cards, and manages to swallow—gulp— sharp needles!
This summer, New York’s magical past comes to life every weekend from June 23 – August 26! Meet magicians, escape artists, fortune-tellers, and more marvelous illusionists from the past—all brought to life by Living Historians from the present. Check out our Family Calendar every week to discover each program’s special theme as it’s announced!
