Illusionist Vitaly Beckman will make his New York City debut with his new solo show, Vitaly: An Evening of Wonders. Produced by Daryl Roth, the show will play the Westside Theatre June 13-September 30.

Raised in Israel and based in Vancouver, Beckman has played sold-out engagements across the world, even stumping Penn & Teller on their series Fool Us.

He invented and designed all the illusions for An Evening of Wonders, including paintings that come alive and still photographs that turn into mini-movies. In one of his most popular illusions, audience members will watch their faces disappear from their own driver's licenses.
