Experience a piece of history that will never be repeated: two celebrity magic shows in commemoration of legendary magician and film star John Calvert’s 100th birthday! Taking place in the grand ballroom of the Hotel Pennsylvania on June 24th and 25th, 2011, the shows will feature some of magic’s biggest stars, including Liu Chen (Asia’s number one magic superstar), Jeff
McBride
(Las Vegas star seen on Criss Angel’s “Mindfreak”), David & Dania (award-winning quick-change act seen on “America’s Got Talent”), and many more! Each show is only $45. For an additional $80 patrons can see both shows as well as a celebrity close-up show, attend lectures and visit the dealer room, commingling with some of the world’s greatest magicians and learning their most mystifying techniques!

The guest of honor, John Calvert, was the first magician to perform on Broadway and in Las Vegas. His world tour holds the record for the longest-running world touring stage show in theatrical history. Calvert is also an accomplished actor, having appeared in over forty films. He is best known for his role as ‘The Falcon’ in the popular noir series of the 1940s and '50s.
