Penn & Teller to christen Magicopolis

Santa Monica venue opens doors Friday

Magicopolis, a two-theater venue, will open on Fourth Street in Santa Monica today with a performance by comic magicians Penn & Teller.

The first production in the Abracadabra Theater is “Nothing’s Impossible,” starring Nicholas Night and Bob Sheets. Previews begin Saturday for a Sept. 26 bow. In the Hocus Pocus Room, “World Class Sleight of Hand” will run continuously, with a new show every 20 minutes.

Magicopolis, with a capacity of 350, was conceived three years ago by magician and entrepreneur Steve Spill as a showcase for up-and-coming illusionists. The site is family-friendly: Unlike many magic clubs, there are no dress codes or age limits.

Advance tickets for the Abracadabra Theatre are available at the box office or by calling (310) 451-2241.

Spill, a 25-year vet of the magic scene, co-owned the Jolly Jester comedy/magic club in Aspen, Colo., and has devised effects used at Harrah’s Tahoe, Universal Studios Hollywood, the Cannes Film Festival and numerous TV shows, including F/X’s “Penn and Teller’s Sin City Spectacular.”
