The Las Vegas escape artist who almost drowned in a final rehearsal for a death-defying stunt in Criss Angel’s new show “The Supernaturalists” has said that he blacked out while chained in padlocks while undersea.
Spencer Horsman was re-creating a Houdini water torture while locked in 25 feet of chains and more than a lots padlocks while suspended 30 feet above the stage in a glass tank fulled of 100 gallons of water.
Spencer believes he made it to the four-minute mark with two padlocks delegated open. Spencer informed ABC News: “It was my ego wishing to press the envelope and go longer instead of signaling for help that I might not make it. I struggle with asthma, and I pushed my body too far.”
Criss stated in an e-mail to me today: “I saw someone losing the ability to be familiar with exactly what was going on.” The Cirque du Soleil “Believe” at Luxor star who is promoting a four-week run of the program at Foxwoods gambling establishment in Connecticut ran onstage, climbed up the chain to the tank, swung ahead and tore it open as frenzied crew members lowered it to the stage.
“This was no promotion stunt,” said Criss. “He owes me his life. Do not attempt this anywhere, any time at any age. I’m delighted that he recovered fully and was able to return for the 2nd night after we had to cancel the premiere. I could not be any happier with the preview opening.
“I knew this show was predestined to be great, however I was definitely elated. The cast was brilliant, the crew was precise, and the program was the most mind-blowing magic program I have actually ever seen– and I’ve seen them all. It is reinventing the magic world as we understand it.”
Former Luxor and Mirage President Felix Rappaport, who is now CEO at Foxwoods, told me: “It was a great program, and it’s getting great buzz from everybody who saw it.”
Spencer concluded: “Thinking about the occurrence that happened last Wednesday night, I could not be happier with my efficiencies because previews began. I’m strong, focused and prepared to excitement audiences every night with a presentation that they’ll never forget and in a program that will certainly delight and surprise any age.
“Thank you all so quite for your thoughts, prayers and concern for my safety.”
The two-hour-plus program features more than 40 initial, revolutionary magic tricks, illusions and leaves, more than other magic show in history. It won standing ovations from sold-out crowds that included Paula Abdul and Tony Orlando. “The Supernaturalists” plays at Foxwoods through July 23, then begins a cross-country and international trip.
Said Paula: “I was surprised.” Tony added: “The very best magic show I have actually ever seen, which’s an understatement. Believe me, I know. I had Doug Henning and David Copperfield open for me!”
