As we prepare for temperatures in eastern Iowa to soar into the 90s every day next week, there's probably no more perfect time to think about the holidays than now. The Illusionists-- Magic of the Holidays is making its way to Cedar Rapids.

VenuWorks says The Illusionists-- Magic of the Holidays is "an all-new installment of the world-famous, blockbuster touring magic spectacular The Illusionists, from Producers Simon Painter, Cirque du Soleil and MagicSpace Entertainment. The new U.S. tour based off the smash-hit Broadway production is headed to more than 20 cities this holiday season and will bring the mind-blowing, family-friendly show."

*Note, at the end of the video a series of shows are mentioned that are not in Cedar Rapids.

Some of the illusionists on the tour include mind-reader, Chris Cox.

Hyunjoon Kim, who excels in manipulation.

And the man they call The Inventor... Kevin James.

The Illusionists-- Magic of the Holidays will play at the Paramount Theatre in downtown Cedar Rapids on Wednesday, November 15. Tickets go on sale on Friday, July 28 at 10 a.m. You can get ticket information and more details on the show here.
