About The Girl Who Handcuffed Houdini

Transporting audiences to 1926, the year Harry Houdini died, Speakeasy Dollhouse unravels the mystery of his untimely death. Written and directed by Cynthia von Buhler and based on her comic book series from Titan Comics/Hard Case Crime, The Girl Who Handcuffed Houdini follows private investigator Minky Woodcock on her first case. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle believes Houdini is not merely a magician but has supernatural powers; Bess Houdini suspects her husband is cheating on her. Minky goes undercover as Houdini’s new assistant, and when the great illusionist dies, Minky’s investigation leads her to the darkest of secrets…

Audience members will witness Harry Houdini’s final days through an immersive theater experience in which they are assigned a character to follow and then view events through that character’s point of view. They might find themselves attending a séance, helping the magician rehearse backstage, sipping absinthe in a speakeasy, spying on an affair in a hotel room, visiting Houdini in his hospital room, or viewing his body in the morgue.

With VIP tickets you'll be Harry Houdini, Minky Woodcock, or Margery of Boston's special VIP guest. Includes the best seats, and exclusive interactive scenes.

Tickets purchased on TodayTix come with free hardcover copy of the original noir graphic novel the play is based on.
