About the show

Amazing Theatricals presents one of the world’s top magic artists, Helder Guimarães, in his brand-new show. More…

Intimate and enigmatic, witty and unorthodox, 'Verso' is Helder’s most daunting journey into the impossible yet. He pushes the very limits of magic and illusion, and challenges how much you’re willing to believe.
