'Houdini' conjures up an extra matinee

Death and Harry Houdini2_DennisWatkins_photobyMichaelBrosilowHow successful is the run of the House Theater of Chicago's Death and Harry Houdini at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts? So successful that every performance in the Carnival Studio Theater run, which winds up May 20, is sold out.

But fans of theater, magic and/or the House just got lucky.  The Arsht has added a 2 p.m. matinee on Saturday, May 19, so that's one more chance to see the charismatic actor-magician Dennis Watkins playing history's greatest illusionist.

Tickets are $45, and you can get them by calling 305-949-6722 or visiting the center's web site. Get 'em before they, like Houdini, disappear.
