World’s Premier Female Escape Artist Featured Recently on NPR

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Lady Houdini, the world’s premier female escape artist, was featured recently on NPR’s “All Things Considered.” Kristen Johnson, known as Lady Houdini, shared with NPR, “I’m not a strong athlete. I’ve never been musically inclined. I just wanted to do something that was going to inspire other people.”

Known as the only female escape artist in the world currently attempting the water torture cell escape, Lady Houdini has performed the escape more than 1100 times and is the first escape artist in history to attempt it in full view. Lady Houdini also holds the record for having performed the most water escapes, surpassing the record formerly set by Harry Houdini.

“Through our performances, we hope to inspire people to find their passion and a way to use it to make a difference,” said Johnson. “We have been humbled to learn how our ministry has impacted so many people through our shows, and are thankful for the unique opportunities God has given us to share His Truth.”

Lady Houdini performs with her husband, Kevin Ridgeway, and the duo are known as Living Illusions. Since 2000 the couple has used their multi-faceted illusion-based performances to share the message of the Gospel. They have brought their faith-based event to churches and conferences across the country, and Lady Houdini has also spoken at teen girls and women’s events. In addition, the duo is in heavy demand for general market shows at arenas, fairs, festivals, sporting events, theatres and colleges.

Living Illusions has generated widespread acclaim and recognition. They received the Masters Award at the Fourth Annual International Escape Artist Convention, and have been seen on “Inside Edition” and CNN Headline News, along with numerous international broadcasts.  In addition, Lady Houdini was the only female featured on the Discovery Channel special, “Inside The Houdini Museum,” which highlighted the life and escapes of Harry Houdini.
