|Red Carpet Series Kicks Off Sunday at Orpheum
|The Orpheum Theatre kicks off the Red Carpet Series' fifth anniversary year with The Spencers: Theatre of Illusion on Sunday, April 11 at 2 pm. Kevin and Cindy Spencer head one of the largest touring illusion companies in the United States and are among the most respected performers in the industry. Their act, titled The Spencers: Theatre of Illusion has been applauded by audiences from Key West to Taipei, from Mexico City to Australia. Now they're coming to Galesburg, Illinois.
The Dallas Morning News called the Spencers "young, attractive, 21st century entertainers" while the Chicago Tribune raved, "The Spencers combine original theatrical elements with high-tech illusions and bring the age old art of magic into the 21st century."
"It's not always about the next cool trick," says Kevin. "Ours is a show with a balance between being personality-driven and magic-driven. People walk away feeling like they know us; like they've spent an evening with us. I really think our show makes a personal, intimate connection with the audience."
The Spencers have redefined the art of illusion and shattered 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 six consecutive years and most recently joined the ranks of Doug Henning and David Copperfield when their peers named the couple "International Magicians of the Year." With complete regard to the brilliance of Broadway and the sparkle of Tinsel Town, master illusionist Kevin and Cindy Spencer bring their state-of-the-art illusions and special effects to the Orpheum Theatre stage for a thrilling, jaw-dropping, heart-racing experience for the entire family.
