About A Simulacrum

Lucas is a playwright. Steve is a magician. Lucas asked Steve to show him some magic tricks. Steve did. And this is what happened.

Tell Me More

Abracadabra! Tony-nominated playwright Lucas Hnath and leading magician Steve Cuiffo team up for A Simulacrum, a spellbinding fusion of theatre and illusions. Get A Simulacrum tickets on TodayTix.

One day, Hnath asked Cuiffo to show home some sleight-of-hand tricks, and that simple ask led them to create the A Simulacrum play. Little is known about the illusions and storytelling you'll get to see, but then again, magicians never reveal their tricks ahead of time.

Hnath is the co-creator and director of A Simulacrum off Broadway, but he's best known as a playwright. A Doll's House, Part 2, his 2017 follow-up to Henrik Ibsen's classic, earned a Tony Award nomination for Best Play, as did his 2021 piece Dana H.

Cuiffo has performed in a variety of live solo and group magic shows, and he's also worked behind the scenes, creating illusions for live theatre and televisual media. He consulted on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel's fifth season, created illusions for the film White Noise, and was a magic consultant on fellow celebrity magician David Blaine's early TV specials.

A Simulacrum tickets are on sale on TodayTix now.

What to Watch For

  • A simulacrum is a representation — such as painting, photo, or model — of an object.
  • Hnath makes his directorial debut with A Simulacrum in New York.
  • Cuiffo and Hnath have worked together before; Cuiffo was the lip sync and illusion consultant for Dana H.
  • Early in his career, Cuiffo became the youngest magician in history to win the National Magic Competition put on by the Society of American Magicians.
