Commonspace LIVE: Now You See Me

First Person Arts and WHYY

Thursday, May 25

Runtime TBA

Cost TBA


Step right up! Step right up! For one night only, three astonishing illusionists tantalize audiences with the mysteries of masculinity and race. Flexing their powers of magic and machismo, performers will defy all reasonable logic with hypnotizing skill. Be mesmerized by their tricks, stunts, and stories, and leave questioning what is real, and what is really illusion.

Featuring Shreeyash Palshikar, Randy Shine, and Fred Siegel

Directed by Mason Rosenthal
