Master illusionist Vitaly Beckman has mystified fans from all over the world, including Las Vegas superstars Penn & Teller, whom he successfully fooled in their hit TV show, Fool Us. From bringing pictures to life to erasing people from their own driver’s licenses, Vitaly’s signature illusions leave even the most jaded audience awestruck. Reputed as “one of the most captivating and enjoyable illusionists performing in the world today” (Chilliwack Progress), Vitaly breathes innovation and artistry into the field of magic. He invented and designed every single illusion in his stage show, treating spectators to theatrical entertainment not seen anywhere else in the world.

This live concert show combines comedy and hits from the original movie and pays homage to Chicago’s rich history of blues, gospel, and soul music. The Official Blues Brothers Revue duo don the official hat and sunglasses and walk in the legendary footsteps of Jake and Elwood Blues. Discovered in Las Vegas, performers Wayne Catania and Kieron Lafferty capture the infectious humor and unbridled spirit of the Blues Brothers like no one since John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd walked the stage. Backed by a powerhouse band, they’ll give you a show to remember that is packed with classic hits from the Blues Brothers catalog, including Soul Man, Rubber Biscuit, Sweet Home Chicago, and more. You’ll enjoy a night of laughter, dancing, and foot-stompin’ fun.

The Mirrored Image: Photography by Ahmed Alsuwayq, Noah Bullock, and Patryk Openchowski
Photography depicts things that are real, right? You can trust photos. Or, maybe not. What about mirror images? After all, the reflection is just a measured image in reverse of the main image. Or, maybe not. These three UD students have a love for photography and a talent for engaging viewers into the narratives of their often private imagery. This exhibit is part of Worldview 1 (UD’s First Year Experience) and the Wendt Scholars’ theme of “justice”. This exhibit is supported, in part, by a grant from the Wendt Center.
Reception: September 16, 2017 | 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m., prior to The Official Blues Brothers Revue
FREE | No Ticket Required
