Magicopolis' long-running hit show Escape Reality: Halloween Edition gets a tweak to trick and treat you this Halloween, mystifying and entertaining audiences with a mix of sketch comedy and magic acts. The husband-and-wife team of Steve Spill and Bozena Wrobel serve up a vaudeville-style show, complete with levitation, mind-reading, disappearances, optical illusions, comedy and music, which climaxes with a nail-biting, Houdini-Inspired escape, The Table of Terror, featuring 39 sharpened steel spikes that present the ultimate challenge to the trapped magician that lies beneath. This dark night of thrills includes a black rose for everyone.
This is an all-ages show.
Discover the artistry and spectacle of magic shows that are designed to stimulate the intellect, stir the imagination and lift the spirit. If images of stuffy black tuxedos, stiff top hats and appearing rabbits are all that come to mind when you think of magic, you need to visit Magicopolis in Santa Monica.
You’ll see people dissolve in one place and reappear somewhere else and someone can read your thoughts. Objects move and change guided by the power of the mind and humans float in mid-air. Again and again you are witness to impossible happenings. Sometimes you even become part of one. The Magicopolis experience is one of highly entertaining live theater. This is the way magic was meant to be seen — It’s leagues beyond televised magic shows.
The shows at Magicopolis run 90 minutes to two hours and feature comedy, magic, music, illusions, special effects and audience participation.
