Harry Houdini played Detroit 19 times between 1894 and 1926. Audiences witnessed nearly all of his increasingly dangerous signature tricks first hand, and saw his star rise from the bottom of show bills to the top. Tour Houdini’s Detroit and discover the macabre link between the city and history’s most famous magician. Presented by Jeremy Dimick, Director of Collections and Curatorial at Detroit Historical Society.
