Can Houdini, the greatest escape artist of all time, Escape His Own Death?
Houdini’s Last Escape features magic, spectacle, spirits, escapes, comedy and true love!
“No play deserves more to be called magical than Ryan Gladstone’s ingenious mystery comedy HOUDINI’S LAST ESCAPE. This is another must-see show at this year’s fringe. It will dazzle and amuse you and all in the space of an hour.” -Louis B. Hobson, Calgary Sun
“Wow! Houdini’s Last Escape is a super-polished, professional production. And word has obviously gotten out because, last night, Fringe staff had to put out extra chairs to accommodate the crowds.” -FFWD
“Monster Theatre pulls a rabbit out of a hat with this wildly theatrical show…it’s no illusion this one’s going to sell out.” -★★★★ 1/2, UPTOWN MAGAZINE
“Gasp-inducing!” -★★★★★, CBC WINNIPEG
