The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is launching an immersive arts experience dedicated to the art of sleight of hand and prestidigitation, Liberty Magic. John and Rachael did some Jaggin’ Around With… Philly magician, Eric Jones, who will be the first to perform when the venue opens on February 9, 2019.
Liberty Magic, 811 Liberty Avenue, will offer one-of-a-kind performances that will be easy to access and hard to forget. World-class magicians and performers gather at Liberty Magic, a parlour magic theater with less than 70 seats in four rows. The creative team behind Liberty Magic includes Scott Shiller, Vice President of Artistic Planning for the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust as Producer, and magicians Dennis Watkins and Lee Terbosic serving as Artistic Advisors.

“As we continue to expand upon our repertoire of artistic offerings in the Cultural District, Liberty Magic is a perfect activation of the intimate storefront at 811 Liberty Avenue,” says Scott Shiller. “We are excited to see our expertise in the Pittsburgh arts community fuse with the art of close-up magic advanced by world-class magicians like Eric Jones, Dennis Watkins and Pittsburgh’s own Lee Terbosic.”
