The critically acclaimed Modern Parlor Magic show transports guests to the turn of the 20th century, where legends like Harry Houdini and Chung Ling Soo charmed and astonished audiences with extraordinary illusions. You’ll enter an upscale parlor set, evoking the distinguished elegance of the Victorian-era spectacles set in private residences in New York, London and Paris. Just like the masters before him, David Carlo has tapped into the secrets of the mind to illustrate how nature’s laws may be bent.
This exciting evening of mysticism will be held at the historical Biltmore Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles. Just one year away from celebrating its 100th anniversary, the Biltmore has served DTLA as a staple of luxury and opulence since opening its doors in 1923. The Biltmore isn’t merely a beautiful hotel, but also a cultural and historical landmark in the local community. In fact, it was recently deemed a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument due to its impact in the area. We can’t think of any place better for David Carlo’s stylish, modern take on the parlor magic of yesteryear than this historic building.
Carlo will wrap audiences in a wondrous world of illusions, mentalism, and theater where live music from electronic musician Solitary Science builds up to a climactic variation on the deadly bullet catch. Be sure to hold your breath, as Carlo will perform his wildest tricks at the heart of an elegant and stunning turn-of-the-century parlor room.
Modern Parlor Magic was created by one of the executive producers of one the most successful television magic shows in history, “MINDFREAK”, starring renowned illusionist Criss Angel. The show went on to become an electrifying, immersive experience in Las Vegas that has revolutionized the magic space.
A breathtaking speakeasy bar with signature cocktails paired with the show make this experience a perfect evening out in L.A.
