THE CLOSE-UP GALLERY FEATURING JOHN STURK
A native of Plymouth, MI, John Sturk has been performing at the Chicago Magic Lounge since its inception, as a co-founder and Artistic Director. Often seen behind the piano at the Lounge, John steps on-stage or behind the bar to present his unique brand of close-up magic. John has performed for audiences ranging from elementary students to corporate clients - but is perhaps best known for his stint at a full-time street performer.
John currently serves as Chicago chapter president for the Society of American Magicians, as well as on the S.A.M. National Council. John is also a member of the Academy of Magic Arts and the International Brotherhood of Magicians.
John is a graduate of Michigan State University, and currently resides in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago.
Inspired by the legendary Magic Castle in LA, and Magic Circle in London, we are bringing you an exclusive, 50 seats only, experience called the Close Up Gallery. Join a magician in the Starlight Lounge at 10pm for an intimate look at close-up magic. No stage, just a table and 50 chairs. This is a peek into the real world of classic, close-up, table magic.
Premium and Deluxe Ticket holders are guaranteed a seat in the Close-Up Gallery.
