‘The Supernaturalists’ By Criss Angel
I didn’t get to the Northeast to see any of the opening week of Criss Angel’s new show “The Supernaturalists” for its four-week, world-premiere run at Foxwoods resort casino in Connecticut.
But having seen its final Las Vegas rehearsals in his secret warehouse here, I’m not at all surprised at the overwhelming positive reactions to it. Criss has outdone himself yet again with the most mind-blowing magic spectacle that’s playing anywhere. It’s definitely 5 out of 5 stars. Brilliant!
Former Luxor and Mirage President Felix Rappaport, who now runs Foxwoods in Connecticut, told me: “In only one week after its world premiere at Foxwoods resort casino in Mashantucket, Conn., Criss Angel’s ‘The Supernaturalists’ has established itself as the standard bearer for a first-class touring ensemble magic show.
“With more tricks, magicians, music, excitement, thrills and laughs than any previous show, it’s the perfect show for the entire family. Having now premiered three of Criss Angel’s creations — Criss Angel’s ‘Believe’ at Luxor, Criss Angel “Mindfreak Live!’ at Foxwoods and now Criss Angel’s ‘The Supernaturalists,’ again at Foxwoods, I feel privileged to have worked with the greatest magician and illusionist on the planet who keeps expanding the boundaries of his art and craft — the one and only Criss Angel.
“Foxwoods has been one of the greatest entertainment capitals of the world since we opened our doors in 1992 — having played host to everyone from Frank Sinatra and Luciano Pavarotti to Diana Ross and Aerosmith.
“We can now add the name of the Greatest Magician of All Time — Criss Angel — who has chosen Foxwoods to debut two of his record-breaking magic-and-illusions extravaganzas — Criss Angel’s ‘Mindfreak Live!’ last winter and now Criss Angel’s ‘The Supernaturalists’ during our $25,000,000 Summer of Fun!”
