Penn & Teller to return to Broadway this summer
NEW YORK (AP) — Penn & Teller are hoping they’ll be able to make tickets disappear on Broadway this summer.
The comedy-and-magic duo said Thursday they will play the Marquis Theatre from July 7-Aug. 16. Tickets go on sale on April 16.
Penn & Teller — Penn Jillette, the taller, louder part of the group, and Raymond Teller, his small, silent partner — have been mixing comedy with magic since they teamed up in 1975. The duo regularly performs in Las Vegas and has appeared on numerous TV shows, including aa Showtime program that debunks pop-culture myths and pop-psychology theories.
They made their off-Broadway debut in 1985 and first played Broadway in 1987. They returned to Broadway in 1991 with “The Refrigerator Tour.” They currently have a show at The Rio in Las Vegas.
