Oprah Winfrey calls him “the greatest illusionist of our time.” With over three decades of performances and $4 billion in ticket sales, Copperfield has certainly lived up to that reputation. David has amassed a staggering 21 Emmys – he’s been declared a Living Legend by the Library of Congress, and Guinness certified him as the highest grossing solo entertainer of all time. More than Madonna, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, and Lady Gaga.
Copperfield’s latest show, “An Intimate Evening of Grand Illusion,” features a unique blend of large, grand illusions and intimate, close-up magic. From beginning to end, the show is packed with jaw-dropping illusions devised by David and his award-winning team. His illusions leave you absolutely speechless.
In 2011, BBC host Alex Belfield proclaimed Copperfield to be “the first and last megastar of magic.” An Intimate Evening of Grand Illusion contains some of the largest, most explosive illusions ever staged: walking through an industrial steel fan, levitating a member of the audience (IN the audience!), vanishing thirteen random audience members, and making a car appear – on stage – surrounded.
The scale of Copperfield’s grand illusions is rivaled only by the intimacy of his signature, close-up magic. And in that realm, he is a master showman – involving the audience in almost every illusion. Critically acclaimed by The New York Times, USA Today, Esquire, and The Las Vegas Review Journal, David Copperfield has single-handedly redefined the art of magic.
From his humble roots as a child in New Jersey, David has propelled himself – and magic – to new heights, with worldwide tours and a record breaking Broadway show. Powerful, inspiring, and evocative, Copperfield’s show reminds all of us that the things we often think impossible are not only possible – but are within our grasp.
