Earlier this year, an unlikely series of events led two of the world's most gifted sleight-of-hand artists, Derek DelGaudio (2011 Close-Up Magician of the Year) and Helder Guimarães (2011 Parlour Magician of the Year), to share a stage. Now, due to unprecedented single ticket sales, DelGaudio and Guimarães' Nothing to Hide directed by Neil Patrick Harris has been extended through Janurary 20, 2013 in the Audrey Skirball Kenis Theater at the Geffen Playhouse. Abandoning the antiquated notions of a traditional magic show, Nothing to Hide takes the audience on an imaginary journey through a series of diverse and engaging vignettes brought to life solely from the words and hands of the two masterful magicians.
"I dare say, watching Derek and Helder perform together was one of the most amazing, confounding, and magical nights of my life," said director Neil Patrick Harris. "After seeing overwhelming response from Magic Castle guests and magicians in an early sell-out run, I knew I needed to bring the show to a larger audience. Now, even with this new extension at the Geffen Playhouse, I know this will be a tough ticket to get, and those that do will have their minds utterly blown."
