The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust announced last week the launch of Liberty Magic @ Home series. A live-streamed interactive magic show allowing viewers to submit questions and view magic tricks from world-renowned magicians.
This Friday at 7:30 p.m., the Cultural Trust will be live-streaming the second free episode of the show, hosted by Zoe Ruth, Venue Manager of Liberty Magic, and features magicians Chris Capehart and Jon Tai. Both magicians are set to be featured in Liberty Magic’s 2020-2021 season. “We’re incredibly excited to give viewers a sneak peak of what they’ll be bringing to Liberty Magic next year” a Cultural Trust representative said.
Chris Capehart is an accomplished master, and has performed in the world’s most prominent theaters, created routines for the biggest names in magic, and conquered the ancient techniques behind the linking rings. Chris Capehart in Journey of the Master runs Wednesday, September 16 – Sunday, October 25, 2020 at Liberty Magic.
Jon Tai, a Pittsburgh native, is a performer with an eclectic background. Jon has studied the craft of magic, mystery, and mindreading for the last seventeen years and his performances explore the questions and quirks of life through storytelling, letting guests be part of the fabric of the show, and connecting people through the shared experience of wonder and mystery. Jon Tai in Zen & The Art of Mystery runs Wednesday, November 25, 2020 – Sunday, January 3, 2021 at Liberty Magic.
