Master illusionist David Copperfield returns to the islands Aug. 18 to 26 with "Portal," being touted as "his most spectacular stage show ever."
returns in August
The Blaisdell Concert Hall show promises quite an encore, with an illusion where 13 members of the audience, chosen at random, will vanish in a fiery blast, with some reappearing miles away and others not coming back at all (gasp!). Besides the grand trick of the evening, Copperfield will also do more intimate sleight-of-hand work.
He was last here in 1998 with his then-Broadway show "Dreams and Nightmares" -- a long way from his days when he worked his magic at the C'est Si Bon at the Pagoda Hotel.
