MAGIC The play
Performed in New York City at the Studio Theatre on Theatre Row February 20-25th, 2018. Composer, music director & co-producer: Kelly Catlin. Script co-writers & co-producers: Yaakov Bressler and Christopher Erlendson.
THE CREATORS Creative partners in crime Yaakov Bressler, Christopher Erlendson, and Kelly Catlin came together to write and score this theatrical production. Yaakov and Christopher lend their fresh and quirky voices to the script's rhymes, while Kelly uses her classical training as a musician to weave a beautiful musical backdrop to the show.
THE STORYLINE In a world where people rely on potions and flying brooms, chaos ensues when magicians begin losing their powers. Unable to solve the problem, crooked government officials blame the crisis on two lowly street performers. Facing arrest, the street performers must decide whether to flee as fugitives or expose the government’s lies.
THE PROJECT Magic the Play, a 90-minute production, has been showcased at the Off-off Broadway venue, Dixon Place, in New York City in April 2017. In February 2018, talented actors, musicians, and crew brought the magic to life again on Theatre Row to sold out audiences, but we have big plans for Magic's future...we have Off-Broadway dreams for Magic the Play. Stay tuned for our next magical production...
