Jeff Hobson is opening the Marvyn's Magic Theater, named in honor of Marvyn Roy, aka Mr. Electric. The theater is located in La Quinta, California, minutes from Palm Springs.

Tickets available soon, www.marvynsmagictheater.com

I heard Jonathon Neal Brown and others will appear at the theater.

Plan to support this new endeavor and see real professional magician perform.

Also on Facebook with some nice vintage video clips about the theater and Mr. Electric.

Greg Otto, nice to hear you will be appearing at the theater. I have your DVD, and wish I could be there to see you live in action.

Good Luck!

Hi all! Yes, we have been going though months of delays but I can safely say that the opening is very close.

Jeff, I understand, when you are opening a new adventure there is always set backs. Chalk it up to a learning experience, then add that new skill to your resume.

If there wasn't a delay it would shock me. I love to see a venue like this open and I'm sure Jeff will make it a success. He is no stranger to what it takes to accomplish.

Had an opportunity to visit the new Marvyn's Magic Theater in La Quinta, last week and was blown away! Jeff Hobson and team have done an amazing job... first class all the way! Shot of the exterior...

You enter a smaller lobby with many cool magic artifacts and a "dematerialization" chamber where one member of your party might vanish! Jeff Hobson greeted all the quests complete with a sparkling tuxedo! A couple of lobby shots...

After saying a secret phrase a door magically opens allowing you to enter the magic bar....

The perfect place for a pre show cocktail. Jeff continued to work the room chatting with guests.

Another big highlight was that award winning magician Andrew Goldenhersch entertained with some wonderful guitar music and some killer close-up magic. I have always wanted to see Andrew live so this was a wonderful surprise.

We were then ushered into the theater to see Nick Lewin and juggler Romano Frediani. They put on an outstanding show and Jeff Hobson was the consummate host/M.C. and also did a cool piece of magic. Photography was not allowed inside the actual theater but it is beautifully designed to allow for an intimate magical experience. No bad seats!

After the show we went back to the bar area for more magic from Andrew. Both Nick and Romano also came out and mingled with the quests.

Overall a great experience that I highly recommend. We spent a couple of nights at the Magic Castle prior to visiting this theater and my wife enjoyed this more than the castle! 5 out of 5 stars!

Just finished a week at this venue as a performer. It has an incredible showroom with first class lighting and sound.A great tech crew and no missed cues! Jeff and his wife Yvonne make you feel very welcome and they manage the nightclub with expertise and class. I look forward to returning and sharing more of my magic with the La Quinta audiences!!

I truly hope CV doesn’t do in this great theater before it even has a chance to get established. An undertaking like this has enough hurdles to get over without having to deal with a possible forced closure.

Best of luck to everyone involved.
Hang in there!
