“Comedy and magic share the stage at this fundraiser for ‘Anomaly’: a new locally-made short film from writer/director Rahn, and produced by Spencer Sherry (The Monkey). The story revolves around a famous magician’s final performance of an inexplicable illusion, and a government agent hell-bent on uncovering its method. After finding out the magician in the script was based on him, world-class illusionist and writer Eric Mead offered to play the role, suddenly launching the project into development. The film will be shot over three days in March at the Cohoes Music Hall, and a generous portion of tonight’s ticket sales will go towards funding this Capital Region-based project.

Given the mystical and spectacular themes of the film, we could think of no better headliner for this event than Matt Richards.
