The Magic Cabaret, Chicago’s longest-running weekly magic show, has wrapped up its amazing ten-year run!

On December 27, 2017, David Parr & Joe Diamond performed the final show of The Magic Cabaret for a sold-out house. Hijinks ensued. Minds were read. Senses were tested. Magic wands were distributed. Brains expanded. Spoons melted. Playing cards developed a will of their own. And it all ended with a standing ovation, as seen in the photo above! David & Joe even initiated everyone into the conjuring arts, so the entire audience could unleash their magical powers all at once!

We want to thank everyone who attended The Magic Cabaret, the performers, and the people behind the scenes, with special thanks to PT Murphy, Cindy Tegtmeyer, Dawn Koster, Nikki Marquardt, and the staff of the Greenhouse Theater Center. You all helped us make the impossible possible for ten years!
