event description

In this one-of-a-kind immersive experience, magician Jeanette Andrews guides visitors through numerous stations to experience magic designed for each of the five primary senses. Highly interactive, audience members collaborate to create the performance by making crucial decisions, possessing seemingly impossible knowledge, and using personal belongings as props, to navigate and unlock each new space as the show progresses to a conclusion that leaves you speechless.

This totally unique experience is composed of a distinctive blend of elegantly composed magic and explores ideas based on Andrews's studies in psychology, science, and art. Watch as an audience member's thought-of scent becomes a reality, a signed card is transported across an impossible distance, a member of the audience is able to surmise Andrews's thoughts, and walnuts carry an unexpected surprise. Thresholds leaves you enthralled and enchanted.
