New York, NY - Live Nation, The Araca Group and EBG (Entertainment Benefits Group) are pleased to announce that world-renowned illusionist CRISS ANGEL will take the stage from July 2 – July 7 as part of the recently announced In Residence on Broadway series at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre (205 West 46th Street).
CRISS ANGEL has dominated the world of magic for over a decade, but even with his incomparable success, Criss’ passion is to constantly create and bring his magic revolution to fans everywhere. CRISS ANGEL RAW – THE MINDFREAK UNPLUGGED is a theatrical experience unlike any seen before; bringing Angel’s famous sleight of hand street magic, mentalism, and even some of his most iconic illusions to life - all performed in an intimate, raw setting.
For this special limited engagement, ANGEL will bring a revolutionary closing illusion – 18 years in the making and the most spectacular ever seen on Broadway - to New York audiences. This incredible illusion has been hailed by his peers as “the greatest illusion of all time!” (Vanish Magazine - largest magic publication worldwide).
Criss says, “Mindfreak started in 2001 in the heart of Times Square, the WWE basement, and now to be back home in New York with my all-new show RAW, playing in a storied Broadway theater where Doug Henning once performed, is a dream come true. RAW is a completely different show than Mindfreak in Las Vegas. It’s intimate and reveals a different side of me - while of course still blowing your mind!"
CRISS ANGEL is the most influential and imitated magician of the modern era. From his role as star, creator, executive producer and director of the most successful magic television series of all time, “Criss Angel MINDFREAK” on A&E Network, to his #1 best-selling Las Vegas stage show Criss Angel MINDFREAK, to countless critically acclaimed television specials and series, best-selling books, top-grossing retail products, music CDs and more. Hailing spectacular reviews from outlets such as Bloomberg Businessweek - who called him “the biggest name in Las Vegas magic”, and the Las Vegas Sun - “The #1 magic show of all time!”, Angel’s magic revolution has single-handedly brought upon the art’s resurgence.
