LAS VEGAS (March 29, 2021) –Penn & Teller announced today they will return to Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino on Thursday, April 22 in their namesake Penn & Teller Theater. The show will feature all-new content and magic as well as selections from Penn & Teller’s extensive catalog of fan favorites.
“We are so excited to go back to doing what we do, where we do it, for the people we do it for,” said Penn Jillette. “Teller and I are both more than two weeks out of our second shots, and in the same bubble, so we can stand unmasked on our stage. We will give up seeing what we hope are smiling faces so our audience can stay masked and safe.”
Additionally, Penn shared, “We haven’t been on stage in over a year, so we don’t know whether the audience will be coming to see us do miracles, or just to see if we remember which way to face on stage. But no matter what, we’re excited to return to our home at the Rio!”
