Special rate for Penn & Teller show!

For over 40 years Penn & Teller have defied labels—and at times physics and good taste– by redefining the genre of magic and inventing their own very distinct niche in comedy.

Group rate for Penn & Teller on Wednesday night, August 28. $75.05 in orchestra section (best seats).

Show begins at 9PM and ends at 10:30PM….things before and after the show with Penn & Teller…don’t know what they are, perhaps out in the audience before and after the show.

If you want to attend, Gloria needs to know by Sunday, July 7. You can contact her directly at
