AN HOUR OF MAGIC WITH PAUL NATHAN (USA), 7:30pm
Award winning magician, Paul Nathan has been seen on HBO, MTV, and even Star Trek Voyager. CBS Evening Magazine called Paul "The most dangerous magician in the world" The San Francisco Chronicle said "The card tricks alone are worth the price of admission"

In 2012 the show was the number one rated magic show at the Edinburgh Festival (out of more than three thousand shows) and the number one children's show. In fact, it was the number two rated show overall at the entire festival.

Each year Paul travels the world bringing an unbridled sense of adventure and inventiveness to the stage combining new media with classic magic effects to create something unlike any other. What makes Paul's show's truly unique is the charisma and charm he brings to the stage. It's not about how funny or how amazing a trick is. It's about the sense of passion in the moment that makes each show so special.

Hour of magic includes mind bending magic from one of the world's most critically acclaimed magicians as well as live music and theatrical effects that will leave you dazzled, inspired, and laughing.

Usually for laughs.
