Magician and illusionist extraordinaire Criss Angel is headed to Broadway with Criss Angel Raw – The Mindfreak Unplugged.

Tickets for the general public go on sale starting Friday, April 12 at 10 am.
“Criss Angel has dominated the world of magic for over a decade, but even with his incomparable success, Criss’ passion is to constantly create and bring his magic revolution to fans everywhere. Criss Angel Raw – The Mindfreak Unplugged is a theatrical experience unlike any seen before; bringing Angel’s famous sleight of hand street magic, mentalism, and even some of his most iconic illusions to life – all performed in an intimate, raw setting.”
Criss Angel shared this about his forthcoming Broadway event , “Mindfreak started in 2001 on Broadway & 43rd in the WWE basement and now to be back home in New York with my all-new show Raw, playing in a storied Broadway theater where Doug Henning once performed, is a dream come true. Raw is a completely different show than Mindfreak in Las Vegas. It’s intimate and reveals a different side of me – while of course still blowing your mind!” Criss Angel promises a “revolutionary closing illusion” for the show, one that has been 18 year in the making.
One of the most-influential magicians of the modern era, Criss has served as star, creator, executive producer and director of the most successful magic television series of all time Criss Angel MINDFREAK on A&E Network. He also holds the distinction of the #1 best-selling Las Vegas stage show. Criss Angel has enjoyed a parade of critically acclaimed television specials and series, best-selling books, top-grossing retail products, music CDs and more.
