Flim Flamming last night in Malibu

The new play by Gene Franklin Smith, Flim Flam: Houdini and the Hereafter, had its "Red Carpet Gala" opening at the Malibu Playhouse last night. The sold out event was a big success and the play itself was terrific! I'm hoping to get my review up by Monday, but in the meantime, enjoys these pics from last night.
