(Soulpepper Theatre/Magicana). Trickster/magician David Ben performs magic inspired by an eclectic range of people and events. Opens Dec 5 and runs to Jan 3, see website for schedule. $24-$69.
David Ben performs holiday magic of a different sort in this charming show that features sleight-of-hand tricks, lots of audience participation and at least one jaw-dropping routine involving sewing needles. Steeped in the history of illusionists of the past, this is a pleasant all-ages show.
