Rod Drummond, writer, performer, and director from Glasgow makes his University Musical Society (UMS) debut performance in this darkly humorous and engaging theatrical magic show Tuesday, January 7-12, 2014, in Ann Arbor's Arthur Miller Theatre. A stunt so dangerous that Houdini refused even to attempt it, the magic trick known as the Bullet Catch has claimed the lives of at least 12 illusionists, assistants, and spectators since its conception in 1613. Writer and performer Rob Drummond explores the history of the Bullet Catch, including the true story of William Henderson, who died in 1912 attempting the infamous trick. Drummond reads the minds of his audience as he leads them through a theatrical magic show featuring levitation, games of chance, and — for those who dare stay to the very end —the most notorious finale in show business.
