Magic, Mystery & Mischief at the historic Biograph Theater

We are pleased to announce that our special guest performer for the month of August is Arthur Trace! Arthur has taken magical entertainment in the direction of performance art, and in the process he has made quite a name for himself in the world of magic. Acclaimed as one of the most unique acts in magic today, Arthur Trace is the eighth magician in the history of magic to be awarded The International Brotherhood of Magicians' "Gold Medal International Award of Excellence," and in 2006 Arthur became a FISM award winner at the World Championship of Magic in Stockholm. Although Arthur calls Chicago home, he is a regular performer at Hollywood's world-famous Magic Castle and in New York's Off-Broadway hit Monday Night Magic. When not performing in theatrical productions, Arthur can be found entertaining at colleges and private events around the world. We're very happy Arthur is joining us at The Magic Cabaret on August 7, 14, 21 and 28!
