The 49 Boxes is a social, story-driven experience where audiences interact with artifacts from the Golden Age of Magic in order to solve mysteries that have been kept secret for more than half a century. This doesn’t happen around you…it happens because of you.
The 49 Boxes was created by Michael Borys, the award-winning designer and Alex Lieu, a pioneer in immersive storytelling and entertainment.
Ushers guide guests through a long since used door and into a magic parlor – a soundtrack plays music from days of old. Very few people have ever laid eyes on this inner sanctum of history, story and experience.
Countless wooden boxes of different shapes, textures and sizes adorn tables that flank a low stage. At the center of it all, one spotlight focuses on a large, Wooden Box that’s been sealed tight by 19 strange locks from around the world – What could these ancient boxes contain?
When the last of the guests have found their seats, a well dressed host arrives and explains the history of The 49 Boxes – this collection was the final trick up the sleeve of the greatest creator of handcrafted magic apparatus the world has ever known. The “Creator” was responsible for one of a kind devices. But he was most famous for having a client list comprised of every major magician from The Golden Age of Magic – including Harry Houdini.
