Some of the stars of the CW television program Masters of Illusion stopped in at Caesars Windsor on Saturday night (Feb. 2, 2019) for a delightful serving of sleight of hand, levitation and some good old-fashioned dismemberment.
It was a night of fast-paced magic, comedy and illusions, with fan favourites Naathan Phan, Chipper Lowell, Michael Turco, Tommy Wind and The Monks, all from the award-winning television show.
Masters of Illusion is a huge stage phenomenon born from the multi-award-winning television series Masters of Illusion, which will be seen in its fifth Season airing nationwide later this year on The CW Network. A live production of Masters of Illusion is also currently playing in residency at Bally’s Las Vegas as well. The initial idea of Masters of Illusion came out of the success of the brain-bending Broadway sensation The Illusionists.
The show kicked off with several feats of levitation, vanishing acts and one trick where the assistant was separated into 9 different pieces before being returned back to one whole body. The cutest of the evening was a levitating house routine where Naathan Phan lifted up a hand-sized version of the house from the 2009 Disney Pixar movie Up with nothing but a bright blue balloon.
The interactive audience-participation show was certainly a hit in Windsor. George Szeman wrote on the Caesars Windsor Facebook page: “Excellent show with a lot of unexpected comedy and lots of audience involvement.”
