The Present is inspired by Helder Guimarães’ own life experience with quarantine during childhood. Using his signature mind-bending illusions, Guimarães recalls the funny, moving, and ultimately illuminating lessons he learned when he least expected them.
Having sold out its entire 24 week run with rave reviews from audiences and critics alike, The Present has become one of the most successful interactive virtual shows of 2020. We're opening up the production to the entire world for one, final blow-out spectacular live-streaming event, with donation proceeds directly supporting COVID-19 relief for artists and arts professionals.
A core group of 24 invited participants comprised of special guests will participate with Guimarães in the grand finale Zoom performance. Audiences will be able to purchase viewing-only tickets for $25 to watch on Stellar, a new premium streaming company for live entertainment that delivers exceptional theater experiences on every device.
Audiences can request a mystery envelope to be mailed for just $15 more (International: $25), including some of the same contents from the original mystery boxes, allowing everyone to experience the magic of the show in their own hands.
