Houdini returns to Truro

Bruce MacNab, author of Metamorphosis: The Apprenticeship of Harry Houdini, will be giving a talk about "Houdini in Truro" tomorrow, May 23, 2013, at the Colchester Historeum, 29 Young Street, Truro, Canada.

Houdini himself performed at Truro's Gunn Opera House during his tour of the Canadian Maritimes in 1896. The Houdinis ill-fated tour with the Marco Magic Company is the subject of Bruce's remarkable book.

Metamorphosis: The Apprenticeship of Harry Houdini can be purchased on Amazon. You can read my review of the book here.

You can also read a recent profile of Bruce and his Houdini work at the Truro Daily News.


  1. That photo of Houdini is reversed. I hate that.

    1. Yeah, that always tweaks me a bit as well. Never sure how this happens.
