Review for Superstars of Magic 4 Show at Resorts World Genting27 August, 2015
Another non-theme park feature at Resorts World Genting is the exciting Superstars of Magic 4 Show, which is the Resorts’ fourth instalment of Asia’s biggest magic variety show. Boasting a repertoire of seven highly talented magicians from around the world, the “Magic of the East Meets West” themed show is a major crowd-pleaser, particularly with the intelligent use of innovative technologies to produce dazzling illusions and stunning tricks.
Here’s a round-up of the featured magicians:
From Germany, Alana Moelmann, the only female magician in the show, her act involves conjuring multiple human hands from within her jacket. What a handy set of limbs to have (no pun intended).
Another two magicians from the “West” include Joseph Gabriel and Jay Mattioli from the United States, with the former popularly known as the “Godfather of Dove Magic”, with past performances on Broadway. Jay was previously a finalist magician on the 2009’s America’s Got Talent show, matching his show-stopping magic tricks with a strong sense of humour and entertainment.
Hailing from Canada, the final “West” magician Shawn Farquhar has previously starred on the Ellen Show, and is the existing President of the International Brotherhood of Magician- In fact, he was even the winner of the FISM Close Up Championships of Magic back in 2012. Unfortunately, his act was not featured during the show when we visited Resorts World Genting, but we hear that Shawn is particularly recognised for his remarkable sleight of hand skills.
From the “East” side of the magician superstar group, Jeff Lee from Taiwan displays his unique TV magic, accompanied with contemporary music. From Korea, Ted Kim’s act involves the remarkable coordination with innovative screen mapping and LED projector technologies, highly popular amongst the younger generations.
The last magician is a clear hit with the girls- One Gun, a young Korean magician with K-pop star good looks, his T-shirt act is another act not to be missed.
Review of the Superstars of Magic 4 Show:
We were impressed by the quality of the illusions and tricks displayed during the show, particularly with the clever usage of technology and sets to enhance the depth of the tricks. By pulling together a line-up of highly recognised magicians around the world in a single show, Resorts World Genting also offers you an opportunity to view the best tricks of each illusionist, which vary across concepts. Our favourite part of the show? We particularly liked the classic bird magic tricks of Joseph Gabriel (USA). You might think that these tricks are old-school- Conjuring doves out of thin air? Been there done that. Old school. But all we can say is, wait till the end of his set, it’s definitely not just a small dove that he pulls out 😉
To enjoy a truly magical night of illusions and amazing performances, tickets are priced from RM98-248 for adults, and RM48-98 for children, with daily 8pm shows are from 10 July to 25 October 2015 (additional 4pm matinee on Saturdays) in the Genting International Showroom.
