David London’s Magic Outside the Box

Media Title

Through a creative blend of magic, storytelling, puppetry and comedy, David London has carved out a unique niche in the prestidigitation community. London’s performances have received praise from a variety of publications, including the Washington Post and the Baltimore City Paper, and his latest show, Magic Outside the Box, continues in the vein of theatrical sleight-of-hand productions full of inventive wonder.       
   
Luckily for his audiences, London thrives on the weird, baffling presentation of his craft. A practitioner since the age of seven, London has spent the majority of his life perfecting his off-kilter take on illusion and mystery, taking his wiles to dozens of museums, galleries, arts conventions and stage fests for years. His distinctly original approach makes it difficult to consider him a traditional magician, as his acts have often bordered the line of “performance art.” His undeniable acumen in the centuries-old trade has yielded uniquely entertaining experiences for many an eager show attendee.       
     
For one night only, London’s Magic Outside the Box touches down at the South Street Magic, which boasts itself as the only full-time magic shop and theater in Philadelphia. You’re guaranteed to squirm in your seat, and chances are, you’ll even be encouraged you to participate. London’s exploration of the surreal and ethereal promises a one-of-a-kind event, one that ages 15 and up will enjoy. / DANIEL GELB
