Penn & Teller & Crabtree?(WRAL-TV5 News)
RALEIGH — If you like traditional magic, Raleigh is the place to be this weekend.

Penn and Teller, two of the more unique magicians in the business, pride themselves on traditional tricks and illusions.

Some are a little strange, like the illusion of a rabbit in a shredder or a bean popping out of an eye.

"I prefer to go with the definition of magic as down and dirty -- tricks, scams, ripoffs -- and don't depend on faith or spiritual connections, says magician Penn Gillette.

Penn and Teller perform their magical masteries through Sunday atRaleigh's Memorial Auditorium.
