For those seeking a magical experience instead of a magic show, check out Punchdrunk's "Sleep No More," currently running in New York. It's a near-wordless version of "Macbeth" mixed with a bit of HItchcock. The audience is masked and set loose to wander individually in a very spooky and menacing 100-room hotel that's art-directed to the hilt. It's eerie, haunting, sometimes tiring and confusing, but definitely an experience you won't forget. This New York Times article does a good job of transmitting some of the flavor of the piece:
