Addie wanted to astonish and dazzle. Performing ballet on stage was too ordinary; she wanted extraordinary. In her day (the 1890s), Addie (Adelaide Hermann) would become the "Queen of Magic." She could pull rabbits out of the air and turn a painting of a beautiful young girl into a real girl and back again. But would she attempt the most dangerous stunt of them all, the bullet-catching trick? Sharply outlined figures seem to pop out of the pages, as bold and energetic as Addie herself.

It's 1870. New York City. Alfred Ely Beach, an inventor, is struck by an idea: What if there were a train that could transport people underground, through a tunnel?

It wasn't until 50 years later that NYC subway system was launched. Claymation figures mixed with photography tell this little-known story.
