Magican David Copperfield is set to try and pull the wool over Chicagos eyes when he arrives for an exclusive three performance engagement in May.
Personally, I've always enjoyed magic, I remember buying magic tricks when I was a kid just so I could figure out how the illusion worked. I can do a few tricks (can't we all), but I just don't have the best sleight of hand that's needed to be a good magician.
David Copperfield on the other hand is a great magician, I'm not embarrassed to say but I think that I've seen him perform at least 20 times and I can't wait to see him again.
He will be performing at the Cadillac Theater on May 7th & 8th with tickets starting at only $30. Tickets go on sale this Friday, March 26th at 10AM via Ticketmaster.

Following are some of the illusions included in the program.
In an "unplugged" moment of pure sleight-of-hand Copperfield performs "close-up" magic with a lethal black African scorpion. One of the most original, startling--and dangerous--effects ever, this unforgettable display of sleight-of-hand presents Copperfield with a true challenge to his will and dexterity, in a test not to be tried at home.
Copperfield takes liposuction to a whole new level as the six foot one "King of Magic" gets squeezed into the size of a Prada shoebox.
Inspired by David's grandfather's unfilled dream, "The Lottery" is an astonishing epic of brain-busters. Copperfield involves the entire audience, and shares his secret technique for predicting the winning numbers of "The Lottery."
MAN VERSUS STEEL
David walked through the Great Wall of China. This time, he'll do it a little slower. Instead of walking, he floats through solid steel, proving that dreams can dissolve barriers.
One of Copperfield's most heavily-requested creations, thirteen audience members chosen entirely at random vanish, leaving friends and family wondering whether to applaud or call 911. Their fears are allayed as the thirteen reappear, instantly, in the most surprising of places.
"David Copperfield: An Intimate Evening Of Grand Illusion" is an affecting, life-changing event that reaches into the audiences' minds and hearts and takes them on a feast of wish fulfillment. Displaying his off-the-cuff brand of humor, Copperfield breaks new ground in "Grand Illusion" and takes his art to a grand yet intimate, personal yet universal dimension for an evening of wonders that will never be forgotten. *NOTE: ILLUSION LINEUP SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE
