Magician Misty Lee brings her ‘shades of danger’-themed Magic to the El Portal this July. The presentation is family friendly, but this is NOT a kiddie show.
Set to a dazzling array of dance and song, audiences will see a woman levitate, a honey badger read their minds, a volunteer get stabbed (all in good fun), and lots and lots of colors.
A frequent performer at Hollywood's Magic Castle, Misty Lee has appeared (as herself) in comic books (The Spirit, Madame Mirage), on television (Hallmark’s Home and Family, The Dog Whisperer), and has voiced several characters in cartoons and videogames (Princess Leia in Starwars Battlefront, Red Sonja in Queen of Plagues, Squirrel Girl on Ultimate Spider-Man). She inspired and plays Misty Hannah in the interactive game Ingress, and was the first magician to perform for George RR Martin at his Jean Cocteau theater. She often works as a magic consultant, with powerhouse clients like Google and AFLAC.
Pushing the boundaries of traditional prestidigitation for the ‘greater good’, Misty created a shocking straight jacket escape for the Domestic Violence Awareness Hotline, and customized magic for blind YouTube celebrity Tommy Edison, who, before meeting Misty, was convinced magic was “Only for sighted people”.
"In our technological age," says Lee, "Magic is important to rekindle wonder - to remind us we're just human, and the universe still has mysteries."
