The Magicians Guild, a collective of the world’s greatest magicians, brings extraordinary shows in the most intimate and immersive setting, Universal Preservation Hall.
The first of the shows is not to be missed. Introducing Glitches in Reality.
Every three years, in what is deemed the “Olympics of Magic,” the global magic community comes together to name one magician the best of the best. In 2022, that magician was Simon Coronel. Glitches in Reality features World Champion of Close-up Magic and FISM Grand Prix winner, Simon Coronel, in a show that blends theater and magic into a one-of-a-kind, once-in-a-lifetime experience. Labeled an “Alien of Extraordinary Ability” by the U.S. Government, Simon left his engineering career behind to immigrate from Australia to America. Simon spent the next decade of his life honing the techniques that would eventually win him the highest accolade in magic – engineering close-up miracles that focus on the craft, skill, and ingenuity of magic, while still leaving his audience overcome with wonder. His masterpiece production, Glitches in Reality, uses close-up trickery and mind-blowing sleight of hand to take the audience on a journey through the truth behind magic and illusion; a truth that is far more amazing than even the illusions themselves.
