El Portal Theatre proudly presents Gary Peterson’s Supernatural Magic Show, starring Los Angeles Magician Gary Peterson and Mavi, and directed by Tony Clark on June 15–24 with the Gala Opening Night, Friday, June 15 at 8 p.m. at the historic El Portal Theatre Mainstage in the NoHo Arts District inNorth Hollywood.
Supernatural Magic is a Grand Scale Original magic show. ThisLas Vegas style show is a journey out of reality as we know it and into the world of possibility. For centuries, cultures from around the world have believed in the supernatural and for a limited time it is your chance to witness it first hand. From ancient powers of the great Mayans, to strange phenomena from beyond the grave, Gary Peterson takes a closer look at these and many more strange happenings and what ifs. Encompassing all elements of professional magic, the show will range from close-up and sleight-of-hand to large scale, “Vegas-size” illusions. Featured illusions include “The Supernatural Sphere,” “The Guillotine,” and “Neon Blades of Despair.”
The show also features the talents of International German Opera Singer Mavi, the award winning Magician Danny Cole, and Scott Land’s world renowned Marionettes, for an unforgettable evening of fun for the whole family.
Just like most magicians,Garygot his start at a very young age, but unlike other kids, magic wasn’t just a hobby, it was a way of life. While other kids had fun playing on the playground,Garywould spend every waking second creating new ideas, rehearsing, and presenting these miracles to anyone who would watch.
At the ripe old age of 15, he joined the famous Long Beach Mystics Magic club, and later became the president of this prestigious organization. It later became one of the most prolific magic clubs in the world producing from it many of the world’s most famous magicians.
At 19 he started a magic company called West Coast Magic Manufacturers, which manufactured magic, illusions, and special effects. Not only couldGarynow perform bigger tricks but he was going to literally build his future. This ultimately led to him working on several TV specials for David Copperfield, and creating some of the most astonishing magic tricks for fellow illusionist and magicians. A few years into building magic,Garysaw a need to design specialty cases as nothing existed to protect his abstract props and apparatus while traveling and in 1988 Encore Cases was born. Initially just building cases for magic props, Encore quickly reached out into other avenues of entertainment such as Broadway and the Rock Concert touring industry. Since then Encore Cases has not only pioneered the case making business but has become and remained the leader in ATA Case manufacturers.
Encore Cases is located onLankershim Boulevardat the border of Sun Valley andNorth Hollywood. So, it is fitting that Gary Peterson’s Supernatural Magic would make its World Premiere, just down the street on Lankershim Boulevard at the El Portal Theatre in the heart of the NoHo Arts District.
Gary Peterson is one very special type of person whose talents and abilities are beyond Supernatural. This amazing talent was born into a magical life.
