Hosted masterfully by the ebullient Big Al Catraz, Absolute Magic! is an evening of mystery, wonderment and laughs. Set in the intimate SF Playhouse 2, you are up close and personal with every flick of the wrist and wave of a hand. Big Al has assembled some of the finest magicians the Bay Area has to offer for this hour and a half show.
Close-Up Magician Adam Sachs is as nimble with his fingers as he is with his wit. He has amazed audiences for the past 30 years with his mesmerizing feats of derring-do. William Safire of the New York Times calls Adam a wise guy, wiseacre. He will mystify and astound you at every turn. Adam is sophisticated and refined but luckily, he sheds that before coming to the theater.
RJ Owens is larger than life. Seriously, he is BIG in the magic business. Heck, at 300 lbs., he is BIG in ANY business. RJ is a most gifted entertainer. No one has combined Comedy, Magic, and Offbeat Audience Participation the way this guy has. He'll have you rolling in aisles (provided you have them). Imagine if you will, the sharp wit of some of the funniest comics you've ever seen married (well at least living in sin) with the best of all the Magic greats. If you can do this, then you are half way there.
Big Al is no slouch when it comes to magic either. Having appeared locally and Internationally for quite some time has provided Big Al with quite a following. His Meatball Magic is madcap and Hilarious. He captivates his crowds with Big House humor and Back Alley Swindles. Watch your wallets and your wives when Big Al is on the loose!
Absolute Magic! The best alternative to those big name Broadway Shows that are over priced and most times sold out.
