Duffy Hudson, recently named by the Los Angeles Daily News as “LA's Best One Man Show,” recently brought Houdini to life at the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood. Previously, Hudson was the first Living History performer to appear at the renowned club, when he performed there as Edgar Allan Poe.
The entertaining play for all ages focuses on the character of Harry Houdini, who looks back on his incomparable career as an escape artist and magician. No one else ever completely defined the art of escape as Harry Houdini, who also possessed a magnetic stage personality.
The Harry Houdini Living History Night is free and family friendly. It is presented by the South Pasadena Public Library, the Friends of the South Pasadena Public Library, and the Living History Centre Fund. Refreshments will be served, no tickets or reservations are necessary, and doors will open at 6:30 p.m.
The Community Room is located at 1115 El Centro Street. Free parking is available after 6:00 p.m. in the Meridian Mission Parking Garage adjacent to the Metro Gold Line Station on 805 South Meridian Avenue. Street parking around the library is also available, but it tends to fill up quickly.
Sorry for the late notice on this. I only just now learned about this event and this is the first I've heard of Duffy's Houdini act. How did I miss him at the Magic Castle? But I'm looking forward to attending tonight's performance in South Pasadena.

UPDATE: Duffy Hudson brings Houdini to life in South Pasadena.
