NEW YORK (AP) — Magical duo Penn & Teller have managed to make money appear out of thin air on Broadway: They've recouped their show's $2.85 million capitalization.
Penn & Teller — Penn Jillette, the taller, louder part of the group, and Raymond Teller, his small, silent partner — started their latest show July 7 at the Marquis Theatre. It closes Aug. 16.
The show celebrates new and old tricks and bursts the traditional pretensions of stage magic. Its tent poles have the pair pulling a rabbit out of a hat, sawing a woman in half and making a pygmy elephant vanish.
Other recent shows to recoup include "An Act of God," ''The Curious Case of the Dog in the Night-Time" and "Fish in the Dark."
