With all of the craziness of 2020 I cannot say enough positive things about our recent virtual magic show with Richard Preston. Stuart and his team were super easy to work with and were even able to customize his performance to include things specific to our organization. It wasn’t just the amazing magic but also the personal interaction that was unique and engaging participants of all ages that made the event a huge success!

Magic by Richard Preston World's Greatest Magician Frozen in Time

Magician Stuart MacDonald, winner of Penn and Teller Fool Us, International Champion and People’s Choice winner has a new show, Richard Preston, World’s Greatest Magician.

Stuart’s world tour was cut short in March as were all entertainers. With theaters closed and packed houses not in the cards right now, Stuart still wanted a way to support local theaters, so he developed a new show that will take place entirely online.

The show, titled “Richard Preston’s Cocktail Capers” is about Mid-century magician Richard Preston who was cryogenically frozen in 1962 so he could entertain colonists on Mars in 2062. But with everything that’s gone wrong in 2020, world governments voted unanimously to thaw Richard Preston early to bring the world together.

Richard performs his show just like he did on his 1958-62 world tour. The only difference is the setting. It’s a cocktail party with Richard Preston as your host and party magician. The character is a cross between Forrest Gump and Austin Powers. He's ultra cool and his magic influenced some of the greatest historical events in modern times. Richard's weaves stories of his amazing past life with his magic to create a one-of-a-kind magic experience. The show is also interactive, giving ticket buyers the chance to take part in the magic. Some of the magic Richard (Stuart) performs will happen in the viewer’s mind and in their own hands.

The show is professionally broadcast with 3 cameras, takes place on a set and a handy Zoom expert greets everyone and makes sure their computers are ready for the show.
