The Reading Eagle reports that actor Ken Freehill will present the lives of Harry Houdini and George Burns in a one-man show this Saturday, May 25, at the Landhaven Bed & Breakfast, near Barto, Pennsylvania.
Owned and operated by Ed and Donna Land, the historic B&B is known for its house concerts presented in a side room that was formerly a general store. The space accommodates 100 spectators.
Actor Ken Freehill is from Dallas, Texas, and previously performed at Landhaven as Theodore Roosevelt and Edgar Allan Poe.
Freehill said the premise of his 45-minute show is Harry Houdini at a press conference debunking a medium. He said certain members of the audience are given questions to ask, prompting stories that highlight details of his life.
During the performance Freehill does three tricks -- one of mind reading, one sleight of hand and a handcuff escape.
The Landhaven Bed & Breakfast is located at 1194 Huff's Church Road. Admission is free, but reservations are requested.
