Nathan Kranzo Lecture @ Plymouth Community Arts Council
Mar 13 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

NATHAN KRANZO IS BACK with an ALL NEW LECTURE

Don't miss him at the Ann Arbor Magic Club meeting on Wednesday  March 13 at 7:00 PM at the Plymouth Community Arts Council 774 Sheldon Rd, Plymouth, MI.

Nathan Kranzo has performed and lectured all over the United States, Europe and Asia for the last two decades.

Nathan has written SEVEN magic books and created hundreds of magic effects. His original creations have been published in MAGIC, GENII, MUM, The Linking Ring, PENUMBRA...and the list goes on. He was also a columnist for MUM magazine for multiple years.

Nathan has worked as a consultant for Penn and Teller, appeared on the SyFy show "Wizard Wars", as well as the FOX show "Houdini and Doyle". Most recently Nathan was featured on the Chinese hit television series "The Amazing Magicians" which was the #1 show for TEN weeks in China!!!

FOR THE CLOSE UP GUYS

  • EZ OIL & Water
    This is an amazing self working "oil and water" routine that happens in the spectators hands.
  • Dark Triumph
    Magic that happens in the spectator's own hands is a theme that you see a lot in Nathan's work. Why? Because it's hard to get anything stronger than that! Imagine, performing a version of Dai Vernon's TRIUMPH where the spectator gets to Shuffle. They immediately spread the cards and they are all facedown, except for their selection!!!!!!
  • THE OPENER COIN ROUTINE
    This is a routine that Kranzo uses as an opener for small groups. It combines visual magic with comedy and Kranzo uses this routine to talk about the psychology of social dynamics.
  • Moneyball
    This effect will astonish a four-year-old and a 94 year old. A quarter visually transforms into a rubber bouncy ball and can be immediately given away.
  • Schrödinger's Card
    Don't worry we won't poison a cat. But this piece of card magic is guaranteed fool you. Quite possibly the cleanest card transposition effect you'll ever see.

FOR THE STAND UP/Parlor GUYS

  • Repetition
    This was nominated for trick of the year in 2021!!! This is nathan's modern take on "six card, repeat". A stand-up card routine that can be done for a small or large audience, young or old, with built in comedy and a surprise ending. Oh and it's self working.
  • GAGS GALORE
    Kranzo will teach several bits, gags and effects from his classic books Comedy For Magicians and Mentalists. http://kranzomagic.myshopify.com/products/comedy

FOR THE MENTALISTS

  • THE TRU TEST/MAGAZINE TEST
    Take any modern magazine and perform a MIRACLE. Imagine if you could perform the Mother Of ALL Book Tests with a page from a MAGAZINE.
