New Westminster: Taylor Hughes [May 16 - 19]

From the February 18th Facebook post by Shawn Farquhar:

Some exciting news for Hidden Wonders Speakeasy Magic Experience and the magicians of BC. I have invited a guest artists to present their show for an entire weekend in the showroom in May. You won't want to miss this magician!  

If we ask really nice he might even do a lecture! Ticket sales are open to the public so this is certain to sell out fast, like all Hidden Wonders shows.

February 2024 Genii Issue Features Canadians


The current issue of Genii opens with a heart-felt tribute filling an entire page in their "In Memorium" section to the late Micky Hades written by Stephen Forrester.

"The Eye" section (featuring stories from around the world of magic) curated by Vanessa Armstrong has two Canadian references:

  • A photo of Gabriella Lester illustrates a short piece linking to a longer New York Times article on diversity in magic, highlighting three women performing today including Lester. Armstrong refutes some of its broader generalizations.

  • A second longer piece about the Magic of Tony Eng Exhibition opening in the Victoria BC Chinatown Museum includes several quotes from Tony's daughter (the Executive Director of Magicana Julie Eng) as well as a link to the CBC television report on the Exhibition's openinglast December.

Finally, in Shawn McMaster's column "Knights at the Magic Castle" Murray Sawchuck is prominently reviewed for his December holidays appearance at The Magic Castle along with Lefty (Doug Leferovich.)
