Some of you know we produce a large stage show that tours the country. With that Kristen is recognized at the premier female escape in North America. This Past April she became the only woman in the U.S. to escape from the famous Houdini Water Torture Cell...and only woman or man to do it in full view.
Well yesterday, the L.A. Times did an article on escape artists, and the resurfacing of publicity surrounding them. Only three escape artists were mentioned other than the late Houdini. Kristen was recognized for your feats done this year. Mark and Sheila Cannon were the stars of the article, with the story telling about their online company and the escape artist convention they put on.
You must register to read the L.A. Times online, I have posted the link, but will also include some of the article here from the front page. Just wanted to share with the Café this exciting news.


Slipping the Knots to Fame
Amid the popularity of daredevil reality shows and extreme sports, escape artists are getting a second breath -- and some online help.

Indiana's Kristen Johnson became the first female to perform a vertical escape from a narrow, 6-foot, 4-inch-tall water-filled tank. Restrained with handcuffs, a neck shackle and leg irons, she freed herself in full view of onlookers.

Johnson proclaimed the convention to be "a milestone for the escape community," which has been in something of a funk since Houdini's death on Halloween Day in 1926 at the age of 52.
