Now you see him…
One of the great “principals” of magic, Steve Wyrick, will be visible to the naked eye when he appears on stage at the Golden Nugget in Atlantic City from January 16-February 24, 2013, with shows Wednesday-Friday at 8 p.m., Saturday at 6 and 9 p.m., and Sunday at 2 p.m.
The groundbreaking illusionist, who made history when he staged the world’s largest illusion with a Lear Jet 35 and, again, when he and The Teutuls of Orange County Choppers created the first-ever invisible chopper for the TV series American Chopper that he made appear in front of 5,000 people on the Las Vegas Strip, will be unveiling his all-new multimedia stage show for this engagement. With the sky being the limit for Wyrick’s imagination and epic illusions, this time he will make a full-sized Piper Cherokee 180 airplane appear on the intimate stage of the Golden Nugget.
“I’m very excited to be returning to Atlantic City and to be bringing my new show to the beautiful Golden Nugget,” Wyrick enthuses. “This multimedia show merges the art of illusion with the most advanced video technology available. In one illusion, I actually go inside a classic 80’s Ms. Pac-Man arcade game. I leave present time and go into a virtual world and create magic there. I bring things back with me, including a real live person, into the present. In other illusions, I vanish in my Orange County Chopper 30 feet in the air. I also create one illusion underwater in which, for the finish, I make a girl materialize submerged. For the finale of the show, I invoke the spirit of my grandmother and it comes alive on stage. Besides grand illusion, I like to create close-up illusions that allow the audience to experience magic at their fingertips.”
In addition to American Chopper on the TLC network, Wyrick, who is also famous for his “Blades of Death” illusion and whose trademark showmanship utilizes magic to tell his personal story, has appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, E! Entertainment’s Talk Soup, HGTV’s Offbeat America,.VH1’s Celebracadabra, and That’s Impossible on the History Channel,
It’s a “shore” bet that he’s got an evening of breathtaking thrills up his sleeve.
