Masters of Illusion Live- Believe the Impossible coming to St. Pete on Monday, Feb 20th!
Masters of Illusion, America’s largest touring magic show is headed to the Maffey Theater on their Believe the Impossible Tour! The show, which will be on Monday, February 20th will feature the best, most unique, amusing, astounding and amazing performers to perform in Masters of Illusion. Masters of Illusion is a huge stage phenomenon born from the multi-award winning television series Masters of Illusion, which will be airing nationwide later this year on The CW Network. The live tour premiered in September 2011 and is in its 6th season. The tour has played 197 shows in 147 venues, 29 states, 6 countries and 3 continents.
I had the privilege of talking to Master Illusionists, Jonathan Pendragon on the phone about the show and what you can expect! First off, the tour combines amazing magicians such as Ed Alonzo, Bill Cook, Farrell Dillon, Greg Gleason, and of course Jonathan Pendragon. Pendragon, who has been performing magic since the early 80s, believes that this tour is an homage to the old magic and variety shows of the past. “This tour combines seasoned magicians with some new and upcoming magicians who have very different styles of magic. We have magicians that range from slight of hand to grand illusion which keeps the show fresh, exciting, and new!”
Masters of Illusion, which just finished taping their 4th season, and the tour work hand in hand allowing the magicians to master their craft while preparing for the show. Pendragon stated that the show is fun to do, however, his heart is in the live shows. ” Yes, we have an audience when we do the TV show, but I always remember that there are millions of people sitting 6 feet behind that camera! He also stated that he loves the personal interaction during and after the show. “I love that we go meet people from the audience after the show, especially the kids. We have kids who show up dressed as magicians and I make a point to uplift them however I can! It’s refreshing to speak to them and motivate them to be whatever they want to be in life when they grow up.”
