Although not exactly pertaining to collecting, we know that many of you enjoy watching magic. Well, Magicana is pleased to announce that it will be part ofLuminato – one of the world’s foremost festivals devoted to creativity and the arts. Now in its fourth year, Luminato is Toronto’s annual ten-day celebration of the arts where the city’s stages, streets, and public spaces are infused with theatre, dance, classical and contemporary music, film, literature, visual arts, and design, and now – Magic.
Magicana will be presenting four of the world’s master magicians – Juan Tamariz, Mac King, Max Maven and Bob Sheets – as part of the program. This is a wonderful opportunity for you – and the public – to see these four stellar performers in a superb setting.
Juan Tamariz will perform his full show three times – first in Spanish (June 17), then in English (June 19) and then in French (June 20), a testament to his extraordinary talent and to the diversity of Toronto, and the Festival. Max Maven presents his one-man theatrical journey – “Thinking In Person” – Friday evening, June 18th. Mac King will be presenting his full Las Vegas show on Saturday and Sunday afternoon, June 19th and 20th. All performances by Tamariz, Maven, and King will take place at the Panasonic Theatre. Tickets will be priced at $35.00 and $45.00, and will go on sale at 10:00 am on April 15th through TicketMaster (call 416-872-1111 or visit www.ticketmaster.ca).
Bob Sheets will be roaming the city, staging impromptu street performances here and there, between the 17th and the 20th. Additional magic-related events are also scheduled, and I’ll comment about the performers, the Festival, and other upcoming events in the coming weeks.
Suffice to say that, for those of you who enjoy live theatre – and the arts in general – Luminato brings some of the very best the world has to offer to Toronto. This year, that includes magic. If you have the chance to attend the Festival, you won’t regret it.
