EXHIBIT HIGHLIGHTS THE LEGACY OF HARRY HOUDINI
BY: Karon Warren
Through Aug. 11, visitors to The Breman Museum can peek behind the curtain, as it were, into the life and career of death defying magician Harry Houdini. In the exhibit “Inescapable,” Houdini’s story is documented with artifacts, photos and archival records. “[The exhibition] explores Houdini’s personal life, from his beginnings as a mischievous rabbi’s son to his desperate years in traveling circuses, his rise to stardom and the technologies that made it possible, and, finally, the true story of his untimely demise,” says Leslie Gordon, the museum’s executive director.
Supplementary programming includes “Houdini in Early Cinema,” a lecture by John Cox on July 14, and Houdini’s Magic Block Party, a family event taking place July 21.
