In the Mix…A Magical Debut for Chicago Children’s Theatre

February 1, 2012

Nothing can contain the excitement for the latest show from our client Chicago Children’s Theatre: The Houdini Box, based on the book from famed children’s author Brian Selznick, with master puppeteer Blair Thomas directing as well as creating sets and puppets for the show. Chicago media couldn’t escape the anticipation for this world-premiere musical adventure, and we coordinated a number of interviews for Selznick in just the last week alone. For example, he discussed The Houdini Box – as well as the Academy Award-nominated Martin Scorsese film, Hugo, which is based on his first book – with Allison Cuddy on WBEZ and on WLS ABC7 Evening News, and the show also was the focus of a major segment on WTTW “Chicago Tonight.” In addition, rave reviews are just now hitting for The Houdini Box in the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Sun-Times and TimeOut Chicago, among others.
