Sunday Family Fun Magic Show showcases a lineup of new, kid-friendly illusionists every weekend. Michael Bonacci (January 6) intermingles sleight of hand and comedy in his show, inviting children to the stage to assist him in illusions of linking rings and making doves and rabbits appear from thin air. Fred Walker (January 20), aided by his assistant and wife, Heather, gets to know the audience through interactive magic involving ropes, cards, and bowls of fruit. The show culminates in Fred lassoing his wife with clothesline and attempting to pull her through a one-inch hole.
Grasso’s Magic Theatre
Before becoming a performance space, Grasso’s Magic Theatre was a cold storage facility, the building itself more than 100 years old and the stage area once housing an industrial freezer. After purchasing the building in 2001, Joe Grasso spent his nights and weekends renovating it, plying his abilities as a carpenter to refurbish and recycle unwanted building materials and furniture, from old theater curtains to the wooden pews used for seating. His son, Michael Grasso, was just starting a career in magic at the time, which recently culminated in a top-10 appearance on America’s Got Talent in 2010.
