Kevin Spencer wows the crowd at a recent show.
Put a bit of magic and mystery in your next Valentine’s Day. World-famous illusionists Kevin and Cindy Spencer are coming to Claremore’s Robson Performing Arts Center with their “Theatre of Illusion.” This is a far cry from your run-of-the-mill magic show, and the Spencers are not your typical magicians. The Spencers’ production is a unique fusion of magic and illusion, humor and mystery, and persona and personality. Ticket prices are set to family friendly, ranging from $10 to $18, with group rates available.
Kevin Spencer sees the production not as a stage full of tricks used to fool people, but as a way to inspire viewers with a sense of wonder. By blending the theatrical elements of a Broadway-style production with the high energy of a rock concert, these artists take their audience on a journey to the brink of impossibility – and back again. Audience members don’t simply watch the show, but are also invited to participate in the magic. Using magic much like a storyteller uses words, Kevin fuses this family-friendly production with a gamut of emotions. And with the skills of a master showman, he creates a world where nothing is impossible and anything can happen.
The Spencers have been described as “modern day Houdinis” by the critics. The duo presents a big high-tech stage show that combines drama, comedy, romance and suspense with elaborate stage illusions. You won’t believe your eyes!
The Spencers appear almost nightly in a different town or city somewhere in the world. They have earned the reputation as one of the most highly regarded acts in magical entertainment and one of the most sought-after illusion teams in the business. Presenters and critics alike give them high marks and rave reviews.
The Spencers continue to redefine “magic” for a new generation of spectators, delivering a larger-than-life sense of wonder to their audience. Entertainers come and go but a few leave behind a lasting impression on their audiences or their art. The Spencers are one of those rare exceptions. The Spencers have redefined the art of illusion and are shattering the stereotype of the traditional magician and assistant. They are the only artists in history to be named Performing Arts Entertainers of the Year for a record-breaking six consecutive years and have twice been named America’s Best Entertainers.
Each year, the International Magicians Society recognizes the best magicians in the world by giving a select few the Merlin Award in a limited number of categories. The Spencers were recently named International Magicians of the Year, the top honor given by the IMS, joining the ranks of Doug Henning, Harry Blackstone, Jr., Penn & Teller, David Copperfield, and Criss Angel. Join the fun, at the Robson Performing Arts Center, February 14 at 7:30 p.m. For ticket information, call 918-923-4290 or purchase tickets online at www.MyTicketOffice.com
