Sleightly Impossible: Comedy Magic Show at Lumber Baron Mystery Mansion

From the event description:

The math of Sleightly Impossible is pretty easy to add up — when you put two magicians on stage, you’re bound to have twice as much fun. Gene R. Gordon and Matthew C. Brandt are about a million times more entertaining than a solo magic performance. Blending their two unique styles of close-up magic, this show will delight you from curtain up to the final ta-da!

When: Thursday, Aug. 15, 7 p.m.
Where: Lumber Baron Mystery Mansion, 2555 W. 37th Ave.
Price: $12.50 (more ticket options available)
