The Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles is producing a magic show over Zoom and includes a mystery package shipped to the viewer's home

The Present:
is inspired by Helder Guimarães’ own life experience with quarantine during childhood. Using his signature mind-bending illusions, Guimarães recalls the funny, moving, and ultimately illuminating lessons he learned when he least expected them, and shares this story with us at a time when we need it most.

This new production will take place virtually via Zoom with a maximum of 25 households per show. You will be mailed a sealed mystery package in advance, the contents of which will only be revealed during the course of each performance, as Guimarães’ story unfolds. In a unique twist, The Present will provide both a virtual and physical experience, as magic will also take place in your own hands, from the comfort of your own home.

1) Purchase a ticket online through this website at least 7 days in advance.
2) A mystery package will be sent to you inside a USPS Priority Mail box.
3) DO NOT OPEN this package until instructed during the show.
4) Follow the instructions and log-in to the Zoom virtual theater at the date and time of your performance.
5) Enjoy the show.
