Neil Patrick Harris to direct new magic show at Geffen Playhouse
Neil Patrick Harris will direct a new magic-themed show at the Geffen Playhouse that is set to open on Nov. 27. “Nothing to Hide,” featuring magicians Derek DelGaudio and Helder Guimarães, will run at the company’s Audrey Skirball Kenis Theater through Jan. 6.
The show, which Harris will direct but not appear in, is a series of stage vignettes revolving around sleight-of-hand tricks, according to the Geffen. The company said the production won’t be part of its regular season and won’t be open for critics to review.
The Geffen said that “Nothing to Hide” will be part of its recently launched Spotlight Series, featuring more intimately scaled productions.
DelGaudio and Guimarães have both performed at the Magic Castle, where Harris serves as president of the board of directors.
Last year, Harris directed “The Expert at the Card Table” at the Broad Stage. The show was written and performed by Guy Hollingworth.
