Matt Hollywood is an extraordinary entertainer, comedian and master illusionist. If you’re looking for a drug-free night where you’ll still be tripping, I recommend booking VIP tickets to Matt Hollywood’s Illusions Magic Show, although it’s been rumoured that Matt Hollywood doesn’t really exist. Rumour has it that he’s a figure of the imagination, an illusion that can disappear in the blink of an eye. He sure had me scratching my head when one minute he was on stage and the next he was sitting in the audience after escaping the jaws of death.

Songs for a New World written and composed by Jason Robert Brown is a composition of songs that tell a story incorporating ‘a moment of decision’ through a span of time. It’s a rather odd combination of stories that weave the historical with the contemporary in an attempt to portray that even throughout time, love never changes.
