Escape artist to perform at Twin City Opera House
MCCONNELSVILLE — Escape artist Michael Griffin will perform at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Twin City Opera House in McConnelsville.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for ages 12 and under. Ticket information is available at operhouseinc.com or by calling 740-962-3030.
It is Griffin’s first appearance at the Twin City Opera House. Griffin has appeared on “America’s Got Talent” and “Masters of Illusion.” He is the only two-time winner of the World Magic Awards for Best Living Escape Artist.
Griffin is offering audience members his original and very unique challenge; If someone can tie him up preventing his escape he will forfeit his $1,000 reward and the person will go home a bit richer. He will also be performing some of the feats that guests can see him doing on TV shows.
The terms of the challenge are simple — if Griffin does not make good on his escape from any rational challenge, he loses his money.
“Sometimes I feel like a gunfighter in the Old West, never knowing what’s coming my way, but never being able to let my guard down,” said Griffin.
