A New Play with Magic, Performed by Jon Tai
Co-Written by Jon Tai and Alex Gruhin
Directed and Produced by Alex Gruhin
59E59 Theaters, Chicago’s A Red Orchid Theatre, Kansas City’s Oddly Correct Coffee and Wesley Stace’s Cabinet of Wonders will co-present the virtual off-Broadway transfer of MISSED CONNECTIONS– a live, intimate and interactive play with magic, conceived for virtual experience.
“MISSED CONNECTIONS is not a passive viewing experience, a livestream or a virtual magic show. It is a totally unique theatrical event, designed for a new performing arts media landscape, enabled by and co-created with its audience on a performance-by-performance basis.” - Kirsten Fitzgerald, Artistic Director of Chicago's MacArthur and multi-Jeff Award Winning A Red Orchid Theatre.
MISSED CONNECTIONS is a magician’s cosmic love story, inspired by the work of writer Haruki Murakami, philosopher Marshall McLuhan and magician Derek DelGaudio (IN & OF ITSELF). The play, which explores the fleeting, unspoken bonds that can emerge between total strangers, takes 20 audience members on a search for the invisible thread that connects them all. Chris Jones writes in his rave review in the Chicago Tribune that “our random, unfair and pandemoniac world dissolves” in MISSED CONNECTIONS, “healed by connective tissue that you just have been too unobservant to perceive.” Take a leap and be a part of its pioneering mission across the universe.
Please note that availability is limited! There are only 20 tickets available for admission, per performance. Only one ticket is required per household.
We recommend MISSED CONNECTIONS for ages 13+
