Magician Joey Pipia Returns to Open Space and Vashon with his Stage Show.
Pipia is back on Vashon after his last visit with two sold out shows of The Magic Chamber: 30 seats, 60 minutes, one outrageous event. That intimate show toured the Northwest culminating in a sold out run at Seattle's Intiman Theater.
Delusions of Grandeur is a seventy-five minute one-of-a-kind theatrical event where wonder and the absurd are presented as one; the audience leaves affirmed in the belief that life is profoundly marvelous. No fancy boxes, no smoke or mirrors. Instead, it's just the magic; straight up, fast paced, funny, and amazing.
Expect to be dazzled by this stage show crafted from years of unique experiences.
"Joey Pipia is a pro," says Kevin Joyce, of the magician's performance on Joyce's TV show, Big Night Out. Pipia added an original twist to Houdini's classic needle swallowing effect; he used shards of broken glass taken from a bottle Joyce had just smashed.
"He created a huge sensation," adds Joyce.
Pipia is a central performer, writer and producer of the legendary Stage Left Vaudeville Show at the Oregon Country Fair. His escape from a straightjacket while hanging 80 feet above Water Street in downtown Port Townsend was featured on Seattle NPR's KUOW Presents, he performs at the international Moisture Festival, and tours regularly with The New Old Time Chautauqua and The Flying Karamazov Brothers. Pipia has appeared in film, on TV, and on stages across the country.
"See this show, live happily ever after," says Jake Seniuk, Director of The Port Angeles Fine Arts Center, who brought in Pipia's original magic as the final event of the museum's series, The Art of Healing, adding, "he's an imp, a wizard with a sixth sense."
