South Street Magic
A combination magic shop and theater, South Street Magic revels in the impossible. Every Friday night, mentalist Lucas Simmons presents his jaw-dropping Deadly Game of Chance, where, armed only with his mastery of the mind, he risks his fingers in a bag full of broken glass randomly placed by an audience member. Sunday afternoons, Mr. Messado dons his finest hat and wand for two family-friendly shows that might incorporate juggling, puppets, and classic illusions, such as convincing the audience that they have free will. In the evening, Dan Hauss of Paper Crane Magic demonstrates his preternatural powers of illusion, with which he destroys and repairs ordinary cards at will, melds shoelaces even as their wearers gape, and causes audience members' signatures to manifest on cards in his deck. Thursday nights, South Street Magic features a differently weekly performer from across the United States and abroad. Previous examples have included Peter McLanachan from Scotland, Mr. Bottle from Singapore, and Max Krause from Phoenix, and upcoming performers include vaudeville enthusiast Fred Siegel and world-traveling illusionist Sam Sandler, who both hail from the Philadelphia area.
