The theater darkens
Music swells with a pulsing beat. A metal pyramid glows center stage, but when opened, it’s empty. Fog rolls in; the music thunders as dancers disturb the fog with their wild and graceful movements. Suddenly, the spotlight… the magician appears from nowhere..and the magic begins!
One of the top stage magicians in the world today, Jim Passé brings sophistication and glamour of Las Vegas illusions to each performance. The recipient of numerous international awards and accolades, Jim Passé has been performing to audiences’ standing ovations across the country for more than a decade. Fascinated by magic most of his life, Jim Passé always loves to amaze and amuse his audiences as much as his audiences like watching the magic. Jim Passé is also the world’s only stage illusionist to perform his entire show using a wheelchair – the result of a serious injury some years ago. His personal story, triumph and show are truly inspiring like no others. Jim Passé has built a professional act at the top of magic that transcends all perception of personal limitations!
The Magic of Jim Passé is highlighted by three major unique illusions. The Pyramid introduces the magician at the beginning of the show. Materializing from the mists of an empty steel and glass pyramid, Jim Passé, accompanied by his dancers, set the tone for an evening of mystery and magic.
In Steel Impressions, Jim Passé draws a young woman confined in a steel-walled box through the front metal wall of the box in full view of the audience. You won’t believe what your eyes are telling you!
Finally, in an illusion seen on NBC TV’s Worlds’ Greatest Magic, Jim Passé presents the Paradox Sphere. A young woman is confined in an open steel sphere. The audience can see her throughout the illusion. She is locked in and pierced with a magical rod; the sphere splits in half taking half the woman with it. Impossible, but she lives, unharmed. You must see the gripping climax!
The show is filled with lots of other exciting magic: other illusions, impossible disappearances, classic parlor magic, mind reading and card tricks (that can be viewed by the largest audience by our projection television system) are all performed with a flair seldom seen in stage magic. And of course there is always lots of good, clean humor and fun for everyone!
