A stunt so dangerous Houdini refused to attempt it, the Bullet Catch has claimed the lives of at least twelve illusionists, assistants and spectators since its conception in 1613. The show follows the life and death onstage of famed bullet catcher, William Henderson, who died 100 years ago performing the trick. Now, with a little help from his audience, modern day marvel William Wonder presents a unique theatrical magic show featuring storytelling, mind reading, levitation, games of chance and, if you’re brave enough to stay for it, the most notorious finale in show business.
