World Stars of Magic at Suncoast Showroom May 29-31

Jeff Hobson at World Stars of MagicNearly a decade after sharing a stage as a spellbinding trio act, illusionists Mark Kalin and Jinger Leigh are back with comedian and magician Jeff Hobson for World Stars of Magic at the Suncoast Showroom for three 7:30 p.m. performances May 29, 30 and 31.

These magicians made a name for themselves in the ‘90s when they mesmerized audiences in Spellbound on the Las Vegas Strip. They later starred in the critically acclaimed Carnival of Wonders in various Reno showrooms, where they amazed and entertained through a showcase of magic, comedy and spectacle.

The unbelievable illusions will continue in World Stars of Magic, where the entertainers will introduce a talking-head illusion. Arriving audience members will encounter the living, breathing and talking head ­ with no body ­ as they find their seats in the Suncoast Showroom and prepare for an evening of mind-boggling marvels.

Early in their career Kalin and Jinger established a rapport that bucked the traditional “magician and assistant” roles. Their signature illusions, the Fire Spiker, Circle of Fire and the heart-stopping Sawing-in-Half illusion, earned them a reputation that set the stage for a successful career in the competitive world of magic. As they began creating their own shows in the mid-‘90s, Kalin and Jinger earned accolades and set records in showrooms throughout the United States.
