The prestige and teasing mystery surrounding illusionists of the past are the undying legacies for the illusionists of today, even if their act's soundtracks have been replaced with rock and pop music, and capes have long gone out of fashion. On Saturday, January 19, illusionist Jason Bishop will bring his award-winning act to Nazareth College Arts Center (4245 East Ave.), and in addition to a thrilling performance, he will transform a $1 bill into a $100 note for one lucky audience member.
The family-friendly show takes place at 8 p.m., and will include double levitations and close-up sleight of hand projected onto LCD screens. Prior to the show, Bishop will lead a lecture at 7 p.m. in the Peace Theater (room A14), located in the lower level of the Arts Center. Tickets to The Jason Bishop Show are $35-$50, and can be reserved by calling 389-2170, or by visiting artscenter.naz.edu. Don't forget to bring your dollar bills!
