Behind the Scenes with the Mediums
May 3rd, 7 PM, Chicago Cultural Center, Historical Reenactment, Free
Ever wonder what a 19th century séance was like? Ever wanted to know how tables were made to levitate, handwriting made to appear on slates, and the faces of the dead made to materialize on blank canvases? Well, now those questions can be answered and those desires can be met. Learn about the Bangs Sisters, 2 Chicago mediums infamous for their Spirit Portraits! Meet David Abbott, the magician dedicated to exposing frauds! And contact the spirit of Harry Houdini while seated within the historic Grand Army of the Republic Rotunda! “Behind the Scenes with the Mediums” is being performed in conjunction with MORBID CURIOSITY and in partnership with CHICAGO PUBLISHES.
