“Dinner and a Play”
Flim Flam at Malibu Playhouse
What: A Play. World Premiere of Flim Flam: Houdini and the Hereafter written by Gene Franklin Smith and directed by Thomas James O’Leary. Featuring Gigi Bermingham, Melissa Kite, Sabra Malkinson, Cameron Mitchell Jr, Peter Van Norden and Rick D. Wasserman. Produced by Julia Holland and Andi Howard.
Based on actual events, in Flim Flam during the summer of 1922, Harry Houdini and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle team to investigate psychic mediums for the Scientific American committee. Their friendship is challenged when Conan Doyle champions a beautiful and seductive psychic as authentic. Houdini is determined to prove that she is a phony, until she appears to make contact with Houdini’s beloved dead mother, and he must confront his own beliefs about life-after-death.
As a supporter of the local theater for several years, I highly recommend the experience. This is the last play in the current season. I hope if you enjoy “Flim Flam” you will buy a season ticket for the 2014-2015 season.
Gravina Malibu offers a 10% discount to theater going diners before or after the performance. Reservations Recommended 310-457-0711
