About this show

Sean Masterson brings to life the magic and stories of the witty French magician "Herrmann The Great". Herrmann's magical matinees were a beloved Chicago tradition at the end of the 19th century. Sean imaginatively combines sleight-of-hand magic and baffling illusions with tales of Herrmann's off stage antics in the Windy City. Matinee Magic is a highly visual magic show with audience participation. Sean astonishes his audiences with deft manipulations, a mind reading puppet and objects that float right out of a spectator's hands. The show features an original Herrmann illusion rarely seen since his last Chicago appearance in 1896. Perfect for the young and young at heart (ages 7 and older).
