Jeanette Andrews is a contemporary illusionist and artist who specializes in creating interactive sensory illusions to provide a contemplative take on the art of the impossible. She combines a lifetime of craft with influences not typically seen in magic performances, such as interactive performance art, immersive theater, quantum physics and philosophy.
Andrews is considered one of the brightest, most innovative young artists in magic and illusion today. She has toured “Thresholds” to sold-out audiences across the United States and recently played to a standing-room audience at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. She was named one of the top magicians in Chicago in the Chicago Reader’s “Best of Chicago 2016” and has been featured on “Chicago Tonight” and in the Daily Mail, Chicago Tribune and Newcity.
“My vision is to bring the art of illusion back to a high art, with the prestige it held in the 1800s,” Andrews said.
“Andrews provides a new take on the art of the impossible for an unforgettable evening that will leave you speechless and enchanted,” said Forest Preserve District Commissioner Jeff Redick, District 2. “I am truly looking forward to experiencing this performance.”
“This theatrical magic performance explores each of the five senses through illusions and takes visitors on a physical journey through Mayslake,” said Forest Preserve District of DuPage County President Joe Cantore.
