Hocus Pocus - Opens Tonight

David Ben, one of the country's foremost magicians has a new show which officially opens tonight at SoulpepperHocus Pocus formally hits the stage after a weekend of previews at the Young Centre for the Performing Arts, tucked away in Toronto's Distillery Historic District. 

I got to see one of the previews over the weekend and it's an exciting blend of classical conjuring, spoken word, cinema and good old fashioned mystery. The show is family friendly (with a smidgen of mature content.) If you have the opportunity to get down there, I'd highly encourage anyone with an interest in magic to see the show and enjoy a bit of extra enchantment and wonder this holiday season.
