Lady Houdini, the name given to Kristen Johnson by an Inside Edition producer at CBS Studios in New York, has definitely stuck. Especially since she broke immortal Harry Houdini’s record for the most Water Torture Cell escapes ever performed, which historians and magic aficionados worldwide estimate to be just over one thousand. She broke Houdini’s record in 2012, and is currently over 1,950 attempts and counting.
Johnson seems fearless, even to the fault of flirting with death, as in the case of the Water Torture Cell. It’s a nail biter, watching her during the escape, as she is able to hold her breath under for up to 5 minutes and 2 seconds while methodically picking the padlocks, handcuffs, and leg shackles that hold her in what could quickly become a watery grave.
Kristen, a real escapologist, also performs the aerial straitjacket escape which Houdini so often used. In 2007, Kristen once again set out to ‘best’ Houdini’s escape and for over three years whether outside with a crane at 80 feet high or inside an arena at 40 feet above the stage, hanging from battens, she would escape the jacket, remove her feet from the rope loops and rappel or fast rope down.
Lady Houdini is a show you don’t want to miss!
