Magic And Mystery At Union Station

Roll Into Summer With a Spellbinding showcase of L.A.’s world-class magicians.

South Patio

July 20, 2019 from 6pm to 9pm

Union Station will roll into summer with a spellbinding showcase of L.A.’s world-class magicians. For one evening only, guest can enjoy Magic & Mystery at Union Station, featuring a variety of magic styles, from “close magic” to the work of awe-inspiring mentalists and illusionists.

The free performances on the station’s majestic South Patio will star an eclectic ensemble of top-notch magicians and variety performers. Lindsay Benner, 2019 Magic Castle Award nominee, is slated to MC the event and will delight audiences with her unique mix of classic vaudeville tricks with a theatrically seductive spin.

Award-winning illusionist Joseph Tran will take center stage with his highly interactive, mind blowing sets that deliver the perfect balance of clean-wit and spontaneous fun.

Magician Riccardo Berdini, who has performed for audiences around the world and appeared on the 4th season of Penn & Teller: Fool Us on the CW Network, will captivate the crowd with a sensory performance that blends mentalism and mind reading with his signature Italian sense of humor for an experience like no other.

Throughout the evening, magicians and variety performers will be mingling among guests with mind-bending magic, slight-of-hand sorcery and gravity defying feats including:

Michael Rayner, whose show has been described as “preposterous brilliance” and “whacky jugglement,” a combination of hilarious tricks and stunts with uproarious stand-up and a bounty of improvised fun. He has been seen on America’s Got Talent, The Late Late Show with James Corden, and The David Letterman Show.

Junru Wang, a Guinness world record holder for hand balancing and a former Cirque Du Soleil artist and winner of China’s Got Talent.

Marawa the amazing hula hoop magician, who holds 12 world records and came 3rd on Arab’s Got Talent and was a semi-finalist on Brittan’s Got Talent and America’s Got Talent.
