Tuesdays in September
A night of new and experimental works
Join us for September’s Showcase, featuring performances by two Chicago Magic Lounge all-stars, Paige Thompson and Luis Carreon.
Paige will be showcasing brand new material along with some upgrades to her past favorites. Performing in the The Showcase has brought upon an opportunity to highlight her passions outside of magic, along with sharing how her past experiences help develop her ideas to bring you her newest magic effects.
Carreon will perform his trademark classic close-up parlor magic with a fresh twist, as well as his own original illusions with intense, dramatic elements and his penchant for the bizarre. With audience participation throughout, Luis takes his audience on a journey through what magic is and what it can do!
Each performance will be accompanied by table magic.
In an art form dominated by men, Paige Thompson emerges as one of the few world-class female magicians.
Her performances have taken her from the stages of New York, Chicago, Nashville and Hollywood to Branson, Las Vegas and beyond. Paige was most recently a featured contestant on FOX’s Showtime at the Apollo, hosted by Steve Harvey.
Now, Paige has transitioned into a leading lady, using her passion for magic and experience within the art to give the boys a run for their money.
Magician and mentalist Luis Carreon won the Harlan Tarbell Close up Competition Award from the International Brotherhood of Magicians 2 years in a row and took home 1st place at the Chicago Magic Competition hosted by the Society of American Magicians.
He travels the country teaching other magicians about the art of magic and is the head demonstrator at Magic Inc., the oldest family-owned magic shop in the country. Carreon has been featured on the Univision evening news, was semi-finalist on Tengo Talento (the Spanish language equivalent of America's Got Talent), and is a regular performer at the World Famous Magic castle In Hollywood California.
