    It had never been done before; London, December 1920: a small-time magician stood on the stage of St. George's Hall in front of a handful of influential booking agents. The magician, P. T. Selbit, carefully tied an assistant into a pine box, methodically sectioned the box with sheets of glass and steel, paused, and then picked up a lumbering saw and tore through the center of the box, sawing the woman in half and ensuring his fame in the process.

    For two nights only, the James J. Hill House will present, live, the ultimate of illusions: the Selbit Sawing.

    This program starts at 7, 8, and 9 pm and is suitable for ages 18 and up.
