Interactive Australian production bound for Broadway

New Australian production Metaverse of Magic is set to embark on an international tour, including Broadway and London’s West End, after its successful premiere Australian tour.

Seamlessly blending illusion, spectacle, storytelling, and interactive audience gameplay, this innovative production gives audiences a glimpse into the future of live entertainment.

It encourages audiences to interact live using their phones to complete challenges, compete with fellow audience members and assist the hero Lenoxx on his journey to discover the magical secrets kept within the Inner Realm.

The first stop on the tour is Ithra in Saudi Arabia with plans underway for the production to visit further international destinations including Asia, London’s West End as well as Broadway and across North America.

Bringing together Illusionists from Japan, Taiwan, the Netherlands, Australia and New Zealand, the theatrical event has delighted audiences in Sydney, Brisbane and Canberra to rave reviews.

The production stars Ash Hodgkinson aka Ash Magic, an Australian magician, actor and entertainer who has amassed 10 million followers on Tik Tok, close to 2.9 million followers on YouTube and close to 200,000 million likes for his videos that have been viewed over three billion times.
