Our featured performers are currently Dorothy Dietrich and Dick Brookz. Dorothy was named by Columbia Encyclopedia as one of the 8 most noted magicians of the late 20th century, and has starred on a Home Box Office Special, a Bill Cosby Special, as well as countless other network television shows. She is also known as "The First Lady of Magic". For a detailed biography of her check out her reviews on Wikipedia.com. Both have acted as performers, consultants and advisers for such organizations as The Cris Angel Show, Mindfreak, The New York Times, The London Times, Maidenform, Manhattan Shirts, Yago Sangria, and others. The stage show includes live birds, a rabbit, poodles and doves.
The Travel Channel picked us as one of the top attractions for magic in the world!
It is best to get there at opening and not later than 2:30 or you will miss the stage show.
We start with a short film that features Houdini and our own magicians. This is followed by a fun entertainment filled guided tour of the Houdini exhibit.
If you are very interested in Houdini arrive as close to 1 PM as possible for the slightly longer tour and film.
There is one magic show in the middle of the day in the summer that starts around 2:30. The show lasts about an hour and ends with some tricks you can do. The show is then followed by the film and a shorter tour of the exhibit.
If you arrive at 1 PM you can expect to spend at least 3 hours or longer. If you arrive later at 2:30 PM expect to spend about an hour less time as the second go around is a bit shorter.
It is all in a large 120 year old historic house on one of Scranton's Main Ave. The Main Ave has other historic sites such as The Tripp House and Saint Ann's Bascilica. The Tripp House is not only the oldest homestead in Scranton but in the entire county.
