The Magical Mystery Tour is coming to take you away. So wrote the Beatles.
Well, as the road crates indicate, we have embarked on our own mystery tour, this one starting at Soulpepper.
Although we have been preparing for The Conjuror from many weeks, so much of the show is of a larger scale that you really need to be in the space to bring it to life.
So yesterday, we made our list and checked it twice, as our team loaded the show crates for some of the larger illusions from storage, and transported them down to the rehearsal hall at the Young Centre in the Distillery District.
Unpacking those crates and setting up the performance space was like becoming reacquainted with some long lost friends. I couldn’t help but think of all the good times they conjured up in the past, and the fun we will have together over the next two weeks.
I hope you can join us.
