On this episode of the Spirit of Magic podcast, I am joined by previous guests Todd Robbins and Johnny Thompson. We are also joined by first time guest Teller!  We obviously have gathered to discuss their new Off Broadway show "Play Dead" which was written and directed by Teller, performed by Todd Robbins and in which the Great Tomsoni consulted.  Magic and mystery are combined to bring joy to the audience by scaring them to death and we talk about how that is possible!
