Writer and performer Rob Drummond, in his alter ego of William Wonder, explores the history of the Bullet Catch — a stunt so dangerous Houdini refused to even attempt it — including the true story of William Henderson, who died in 1912 attempting the infamous trick. Drummond reads the minds of his audience as he leads them through a darkly humorous and engaging theatrical magic show featuring levitation, games of chance, and — for those who dare stay to the very end — the most notorious finale in show business. Approx. one hour, 15 minutes. Part of Spoleto Festival USA.
