Some of the biggest names in magic, including Louisville's own Lance Burton and Mac King, will host shows at The Louisville Festival of Magic, Illusion and the Unusual. The festival happens June 14-16.
The Gala show at The Brown Theatre, hosted by Mac King and Lance Burton, will feature performers Christopher Hart ("Thing" in the Addams Family), Max Maven (America's foremost mindreader), Michael Goudeau (the most successful juggler in Las Vegas history), Tina Lenert (Stage Magician of the Year at Hollywood's Magic Castle), and Arden James (Animated Illusionist).
More than 35 shows are available from Friday - Sunday. Ticket prices range from $17.50 to $52.50.
Other shows include:
"From The Dark," a magic show originally designed so that blind people could experience magic, now expanded so those with sight can participate
"The Secret Show," a show so secret we can't even tell you who's in it
Dana Daniels (star of Disney's Golden Horseshoe)
"Sleight of Mind," an academic (but extremely entertaining) multimedia presentation by neurologists Dr. Susan Martinez-Conde and Dr. Stephen Macknik on the relationship between magic and the brain
A portion of proceeds from the Festival will benefit Kosair Children's Hospital, one of the top children's hospitals in America.
Shows for adults, families and children at various venues; The Galt House, Louisville Marriott Downtown, Whiskey Row Lofts Baron Theater, Patrick O'Shea's, The Brown Theatre, Garage Bar
