Especially before coffee, we feel as though we’re moving underwater. Things we know we saw have disappeared (keys, damnit!). Everyone and everything else is moving way too fast for us to follow. All we want is to escape.
Magicians create that state of confusion for a living. The Illusionists are a pack of über-performers who blow minds (and read a few) in a blockbuster tour that visits ASU Gammage through Sunday, January 22. Majestic lighting effects, costumes, and music pump everything up, while the tricks are the old-fashioned kind, mounted like estate jewels in classy modern settings.
Be mesmerized at 1200 South Forest Avenue in Tempe. Tickets are $20 to $125 at ticketmaster.com or 480-965-3434.
