Cinderella Comes To Austin Print E-mail
Wednesday, 07 December 2016 12:57

By Amy Elizondo

Cinderella can be described in just one word: magical! It is sometimes difficult to bring a production of this magnitude and with this much history to life. However, Broadway never fails to deliver. Everything about this musical was simply charming.

In this rendition of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella, we find Cinderella and Prince Topher (short for Christopher) in the middle of some town unrest. Before Cinderella’s preparation for the ball is even considered, she is talking to other townspeople about changes they would like to see happen in the kingdom, sparking her desire to meet the prince and talk about the status of the people and their land. One of the twists I liked about this version is that the focus wasn’t just on the pretty gowns and amazing sets (which were all incredible), but the emphasis was more on being kind to others and hearing people out. Of course the entire cast was fantastic with their song and dance numbers too. The thing that caught my attention the most were the actual costume changes; from the fairy Godmother to Cinderella’s transformation. It was so fun to watch and actually breathtaking. I could hear the gasps and awe from the audience. This musical is one that both children and adults can love and enjoy. It’s a musical that you truly have to see to believe.

Not only are there twists on the old tale that becomes more of comical poke at the original story, there are the numbers In My Own Little Corner, Impossible/It's Possible, and Ten Minutes Ago.

Cinderella runs through Sunday, December 11th. For more information, call (512) 471-4453 or to buy tickets, click here!

The Illusionists - Live From Broadway in Austin Print E-mail

By Amy Elizondo

Prepare to be amazed! Seven illusionists bring something astounding and unique to Austin. From traditional acts like The Escapologist's Harry Houdini water chamber escape to more modern and rare acts like The Anti-Conjuror's quarter in the eye routine, there is something that shocks and awes everyone in the audience.

The most interactive and spellbinding show that you will probably see in your lifetime, The Illusionists consist of The Trickster, performing card tricks, but hosts the show with his dazzling charisma and shoes, The Manipulator, who starts with one card and making it grow into a deck, The Weapon Master, performing many dangerous acts with his crossbow and his assistant, The Deductionist, reading minds from people in the audience, The Inventor, sawing people in half and putting them back together, and even making it snow inside Bass Concert Hall, The Anti-Conjuror, described as Marilyn Manson meets David Copperfield, fascinates with magic tricks changing one of his doves' feathers from white to red right before your eyes (pictured above), and the self-explanatory The Inventor. They bring unpredictable audience members up on stage to perform tricks with them. I give props to these performers for choosing to do so many acts when the audience can be quite unpredictable, but quite humorous.

Another thing that makes the show so enjoyable is how funny most, if not all, of the Illusionists were. They each bring their own comedy to their act and makes the whole show even more fun to watch. The Illusionists - Live From Broadway is a must see show for anyone who likes magic even a little bit, or for anyone who just likes to see mesmerized!

The Illusionists - Live From Broadway runs through Sunday, November 6th. For more information, call (512) 471-4453 or to buy tickets, click here!
