Antonio Díaz, better known as EL MAGO POP creates a Broadway-aimed production of his second show NADA ES IMPOSIBLE (ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE).

After the intimate Barcelona-original show SOMETHING'S COMING by Joan Vázquez was presented at Feinstein's 54 Below on July 2017 to great success, it would be the first time in History that a show created to such scale in Madrid, the capital of Spain and one of Europe's most important theatre centres, will cross the pond and be presented for Broadway audiences.

The show hopes to land in New York after its great success in Spain, that has brought over 1.000.000 theatregoers. This has made Antonio Díaz the Spanish artist who sold the most tickets along the past year.

His TV show can also be seen in over 150 countries through Discovery Channel, and his magic has captivated stars such as Antonio Banderas, Victoria Beckham or Eva Longoria, all of whom declared their admiration to the illusionist.

Antonio Díaz graduated in Acting Studies (Arte Dramático) at the Institut de Teatre de Barcelona (Barcelona Theatre Institute) and in 2013 started his first show in Barcelona, LA GRAN ILUSIÓN. After a few weeks in its first venue, the Teatre Borràs, the show transfered to Barcelona's Teatre Coliseum, where it became the most successful show in the Catalan capital for twelve consecutive weeks. That same year, his show EL MAGO POP premieres in Discovery Channel.

After Barcelona, LA GRAN ILUSIÓN transfered to Madrid, where it hanged the sign Sold Out for over eight consecutive weeks. After a new short season in Barcelona, it comes back to Madrid, where it stayed until September 2016.

In September 2017, NADA ES IMPOSIBLE premiered in Madrid's Teatro Rialto, where it is about to start its second and final season.

The past fifteen years have made Madrid one of the most important capitals of theatre in Europe, welcoming productions like the 25th Anniversary production of LOS MISERABLES (LES MISÉRABLES), EL REY LEÓN (THE LION KING), now on its seventh season, ANASTASIA (on its European premiere) or the new musical EL MÉDICO (THE PHYSICIAN), based on Noah Gordon's best-selling novel. A Broadway transfer would mean a landmark moment for Spanish theatre, being the first time a production created in Madrid in full transfers to New York.
