Genii Magazine said “Masterful! – Breathtaking! – A Killer Finish!” The International Conjuror’s Magazine said “The Audience Gasped!” and “Just When You Think You’ve Seen It All…” The Philadelphia Daily News lauded “The Entire Family Will Be Charmed!”

ABRACADABRA Live on Tour features:

Anti-Conjuror Dan Sperry
Hailed as the most in-demand and “Relevant Modern Illusionist of This Generation,” Dan Sperry has starred on Broadway, on countless Network TV shows and is one of the most viral entities to ever plague the Internet! One of the TOP 10 Most-Searched on YouTube, Mr. Sperry has been described as “Marilyn Manson Meets David Copperfield” … ““Totally Icky Yet Totally Awesome!” … “A Young Alice Cooper of Magic!” and “We have seen the Future of Magic and it is DAN SPERRY!” Dan Sperry presents magic for people who love magic shows but an even better show for people who hate magic shows!

Grand Illusionist Brett Daniels
Co-Creator and original Front Man of “The Illusionists” before it came to America, US Audiences will have a first-look at new and exciting illusions created by the “World-Champion Magician” who has been awarded “Magician of the Year,” “Entertainer of the Year,” “Best Of The Best Grand Illusionist,” “Illusionist Of The Millennium” as well as star of NBC TV Specials “The World’s Greatest Magic,” NBC’s Houdini- Unlocking The Secrets” and ABC’s “Champions of Magic.” Having also Co-Produced Criss Angels’ SUPERNATURALISTS, Brett promises that ABRACADABRA is the Crown Jewel of all that has come before!

Erika Weiss
Taking her name from the King of Handcuffs – Harry Houdini (1874-1926) who was born Erik Weiss and grew up in Appleton, Wisconsin, Erika is rejuvenating a once-traditional art form and bringing it to a new generation. Reimagining the typical “restraints” (pun intended) of the typical male escape artist, Erika blends tradition and modern theatrics in a manner that hasn’t been experienced before. In ABRACADABRA, Erika is going to present a new act, “Lady in the Water” for the first time – anywhere. She has been training for this groundbreaking underwater endeavor tirelessly – in Wisconsin, just like Erik Weiss – Houdini – did 100 years ago. Hoping to make her namesake proud, Erika makes her headlining debut in ABRACADABRA presenting an emotionally jarring feat of mental, physical and psychological challenge in an original groundbreaking escape act that is far beyond what has ever before been performed, attempted — or even imagined!
Matthew Teague
“Mind-Blowing” is the only way to describe this young master of sleight of hand. Previously an underground artist sought out by high end corporate and casino clients, the public is about to understand what everyone’s talking about – “The Matthew Teague Magic Mind Blowing Experience” live onstage in ABRACADABRA!
From Serbia, this “Ghost” – known and whispered as a “Myth” – from those who know the magic underground, MACHIAVELLI is both a musical prodigy and a master illusionist. Magicians have searched for him for years – without success. Now, ABRACADABRA is proud to announce the FIRST PUBLIC PERFORMANCE of this rumored MASTER! Young and Old alike will be delighted by the inimitable talent and skills of MACHIAVELLI!
