Past Event Forced Entertainment: Real Magic 

Three performers are on a sparsely decorated stage. The man on the left of the image is seated, wearing a brown suit, black blindfold over his eyes, and long brown hair. The woman in the center is standing behind a microphone with her left hand raised, and she is wearing a yellow chicken suit (The head of the suit is on the floor next to the seated man.). The man on the right is wearing socks, boxers, and a t-shirt, holding in his right hand a cardboard sign that says algebra, and his head is in his left hand in a sign of exasperation.

The Warhol welcomes back the highly innovative U.K. theater collective Forced Entertainment. Its new performance Real Magic creates a world of absurd disconnection, struggle, and comical repetition. Real Magic takes the audience on a hallucinatory journey, creating a compelling performance about optimism, individual agency, and the desire for change.

Real Magic was commissioned by The Spalding Gray Consortium: Performance Space 122, The Walker Art Center, The Andy Warhol Museum, and On the Boards.

Tickets for Real Magic are $15 / $12 members & students. We’re offering a ticket deal to attend both Forced Entertainment shows, Tomorrow’s Parties on January 10, and Real Magic on January 11: $20 / $15 members & students for tickets to both shows.

This performance is co-presented with The New Hazlett Theater.
