Sean Masterson’s "Timeless Magic" is a magic show interwoven with the story of the souvenir coin that his great uncle received from a magician at Chicago’s Columbian Exposition of 1893. Sean takes his audience on a journey through the “golden age of magic” in his quest to uncover the identity of that anonymous magician. The show brings to life the legendary 19th century magicians immortalized in gorgeous stone lithographic posters lining the walls of the Chicago Magic Lounge. Howard Thurston, Harry Houdini, Harry Blackstone, Chung Ling Soo each passed through the fabled fair and figure into Masterson’s tale. Each performance will be accompanied by table magic. Seating for the main floor ticket holders will be assigned on the night of the show by our Front of House staff. The Harry Blackstone Cabaret features an unobstructed view from every section. The cabaret-style seating, with elevated rail and banquette areas on the main floor, allow for maximum access to view the stage and enjoy a cocktail.
