Daniel Llewelyn-Williams’ one man show, A Regular Little Houdini is an enchanting blend of history, tragedy and magic.
Set in his home town of Newport, South Wales during the Edwardian era, Llewelyn-Williams’ coming of age story of a little boy who idolizes the escape artist Harry Houdini draws on actual events from the town past. It is this legitimacy and Llewelyn-Williams’ all too apparent love of his birth place that give an added luster to an all ready stunning performance.
Joshua Richards’s sharp and skilled direction and Meg Cox’s lovely music play no small part in the show’s success as well. A definite: GOLD
Actor and playwright Daniel Llewelyn-Williams is a master storyteller. He is able to vividly paint a picture of early 1900′s dock life in Newport Wales. Despite the hardships and struggles this life imposes, Llewelyn-Williams’ character Alan Williams presents the indefatigable spirit of a young boy caught up in his dreams of becoming an escape-ologist like his hero Harry Houdini. While the show does contain a few well-done magic tricks and Houdini’s influence plays a big part on this boy’s life, in the end, this is not a play about magic. It is about escaping from a life of hardship and poverty. As the audience is skillfully led through Alan’s own adventures and mishaps of childhood, an unimaginable tragedy strikes and Alan is forced to set ...
This is an absolutely beautiful performance. Smartly written and elegantly performed. This lovingly shared, tender story will resonate in every part of your being. A true story of triumph....
What a lovely story this is.
You have a chance to follow the extremely talented Daniel Llewellyn-Williams on a journey through Edwardian Britain (Newport South Wales to be specific) as he creates this beautiful coming-of-age story right in front of you.
His writing uses Houdini and historical facts as a wonderful through-line that will keep you engaged the entire time.
There is Humour. There is Tragedy. There is heart.
There are twists and turns.
But most of all... there is MAGIC.
This is a MUST see!
