It’s curtains for Houseman

Final show includes juggling, lasers, magic

The Houseman opened in December 1987. “Driving Miss Daisy” and “Penn & Teller” are two of the better-known shows to play there. It is located at the outskirts of the theater district, between 9th and 10th avenues on 42nd Street.
