)-- Illusionist Michael Grandinetti strives to make his magic unique.
He's read the minds of 40,000 people at Kauffman Stadium, he's escaped from razor sharp steel spikes moving towards him at 50mph on NBC's "The World's Most Dangerous Magic," he's levitated 15ft into the air while surrounded by the playing Pittsburgh Symphony at Heinz Hall, and he's performed for the White House Easter Celebration. And now Michael Grandinetti is bringing his original grand illusions to California as the closing performer in the "It's Magic!" tour.
During the current tour, theatergoers will witness a mix of classic illusions including Michael levitating 15ft into the air, in full light at the front of the stage and causing borrowed rings to vanish in a flash of fire, with new illusions developed over the past year such as Michael melting his body through a wall of solid steel, causing a familiar item to travel back in time, and visibly separating a girl in half, without any covering, as she continues to smile and dance. And, this is just the beginning.
"It's Magic!" now in its 56th year, has become an annual tradition throughout California with each season presenting an all new lineup of top magic and variety performers from Hollywood, Las Vegas, and Europe. The show is produced by Terry Hill & Associates who have been presenting concerts and shows for over 40 years, working with a wide range of performers from Bob Hope and Fred Astaire to Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson. The tour begins in early February and continues through the end of March.
It’s been a long journey since he received his first magic set for Christmas, on that snowy morning in Pittsburgh when he was just five years old, but magic has taken Michael on an adventure that he wouldn’t trade for the world. "I've loved every minute of it," Michael said. "And I hope the adventure is just beginning."
