Michelangelo - The New Renaissance of Magic
Shows & Special Events


Michelangelo's theatrical, award-winning, 90-minute, full-evening program.

Fine Impossibilities

A decidedly more intimate encounter with Michelangelo's world of magic and illusion.

Special Events

Unique presentations can easily be adapted—or created—in Michelangelo's workshop.

Illusionicity: Magic and Illusion in Concert

Michelangelo's Illusionicity brings together all of his exclusive illusions and interludes for an evening of grand entertainment and magical artistry.

Illusion set pieces are magically intertwined with audience-participation segments, comedy, music, drama, art, story-telling and—of course—spectacularly-choreographed pieces featuring the beautiful girls of the dance corps.

Like all the best magicians, Michelangelo sold his illusions not just with technical knowledge but with theatrical showmanship.

Illusionicity is the show that won the 2010 Arty Award. It's a 90-minute journey of imagination that explores the boundaries of what it possible—what is real—taking the audience to new places where dreams are tangible, magical things.

Fine Impossibilities

The Fine Impossibilities show is a more compact edition of Michelangelo's evening show, designed for greater portability and variety. For more intimate locations or programs where time may be limited, the Fine Impossibilities show delivers maximum entertainment value.

No mere sleight-of-hand technician—though he's more than proficient at trickery with cards, linking rings, and ropes—Michelangelo delivers beautiful assistants sawed in half, individuals transported from locked boxes and other mysterious disappearances.

The show's flexibility brings a large-scale, theatrical feel to a program that fits the demands of more challenging venues and audiences. Scalable and versatile, the show remains distinctly magical and always entertaining—just the kind of show that only Michelangelo can provide.

Special Events

Michelangelo's extensive theatrical background has given him a unique perspective. He not only designs and builds illusions for himself and other illusionists, he has also created award-winning stage sets, parade floats, plays, music, artwork, films and performance pieces.

A performance like Michelangelo's . . . can remind you what's magical about magic.

Clients around the world have relied on Michelangelo's skills to create something special for their special events. The first consultation is always free.

The Illusions

Michelangelo's illusions and performances are one-of-a-kind. Even when taking on a traditional piece, he creates a new experience by improving the design, elevating the presentation and making everything his own. No show looks like Michelangelo's. No show sounds like Michelangelo's. No show entertains like Michelangelo's.

Some rope, a jacket, and more than one surprise. Even Michelangelo's assistant doesn't see this coming.

A beautiful woman, "consumed" by art, returns in the most unimaginable and striking way possible.

Tattered bits of shadow coalesce into something—or someone—more familiar.

The Channel Changer

First developed by Michelangelo in 1999, this "Future Technology" illusion has been given a high-definition upgrade.

The Interludes

The Italian word "intermezzo" is a word that means "placed between." Like the word "interlude," it beautifully describes these bits of magic performed between the larger illusion segments. Intimate and often humorous, these astonishing pieces are as entertaining as any act within the show.

Voodoo Paper

What happens in Michelangelo's hands, happens in the spectator's hands. It's voodoo!
