Neil Patrick Harris-Directed Magic Show to Open at Geffen Playhouse

The Neil Patrick Harris-directed magician show "Nothing to Hide" will debut at the Geffen Playhouse next month, the theater announced Monday.

The show follows magicians Derek DelGaudio and Helder Guimarães, fresh from sold-out performances at Hollywood's Magic Castle, as they animate a series of vignettes using their sleight-of-hand and a script written by DelGaudio.

"I daresay, watching Derek and Helder perform together was one of the most amazing, confounding and magical nights of my life," Harris said in a statement. "I knew after seeing the reaction from Magic Castle guests and magicians alike that I needed to bring their show to a larger audience."

"Nothing to Hide" opens on Nov. 27 in the Geffen's Audrey Skirball Kenis Theater. It runs through Jan. 6.

The show is the second magic show that Harris, a member of the Magic Castle club, has directed.

Last year, he directed "The Expert at the Card Table," a show written and performed by sleight-of-hand master Guy Hollingworth.
