MAGIC AT CONEY Announces Sunday Matinees

MAGIC AT CONEY Announces Sunday MatineesOver 100 years ago, Coney Island was a beacon for magicians throughout the world. The local sideshows at Dreamland, Luna Park and Steeplechase Park, as well as the dance halls and theaters were a proving ground for those performing artists looking to hone their skills. Luminaries such as Houdini, his brother Hardeen, Cary Grant, William "Budd" Abbott, Dai Vernon, Jean Hugard and Al Flosso were featured artists who went on to stardom around the world.

For the past three seasons, "Magic at Coney!!!" has re-kindled that spark of enchantment. Together with Coney Island U.S.A., Magical Promotions has presented an evening of fun and wonder for the entire family. "Magic at Coney!!!" is a magical variety show highlighting a vast array of magicians; featuring illusionists, escape artists, mentalists and close-up performers.
