RADNEVSKY's REAL MAGIC
Written and directed by Paul Zimet
with Peter Samelson
LaMaMa Theater, 2009
Master illusionist Peter Samelson plays a master illusionist who returns to the stage after a near 30-year absence. Joined by his protégé (whose star is on the rise), the two magicians weave a web of stories within stories while performing classic and new illusions.
"Zimet's staging is fluid and exciting, and the designs of Anna Kiraly (set), Nan Zhang (lighting), and Kiki Smith (costumes) compliment the piece perfectly."
