Master magician Joshua Jay explores the strange, fascinating history of the magicians, spectators, and assistants who have died during magic shows in failed escapes, staged suicides, and freak accidents, plus he’ll dig into the stories behind some of magic’s most fascinating unsolved mysteries. You’ll learn the secret techniques that some magicians have used in their illusions—and he’ll even recreate one of Houdini’s most beautiful and dangerous acts in this multimedia-rich theatrical presentation. Book signing after the program.
Joshua Jay is magic’s “Renaissance Man,” performing on stages in more than 100 countries. He is the author of the best-selling Magic: The Complete Course and is currently performing in Six Impossible Things, his one-man show.Buy tickets/get more info now
