Believe The Impossible At 'Masters Of Illusion' In Poughkeepsie

POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- The CW’s hit TV series, "Masters of Illusion" comes to life in Poughkeepsie at the Bardavon Theater on Sunday.

"Believe the Impossible -- Masters of Illusions Live" will show audience members grand illusions, levitating women, appearances and vanishes, escapes, comedy magic, sleight of hand and more.

The show begins at 7 p.m. and tickets cost $39-$69. All seats are reserved. Click here for tickets.

The magicians will meet with audience members after the performance.

The event is comprised of magicians Michael Turco, Jonathan Pendragon, Greg Gleason and Farrell Dillon.

Turco fell in love with the mystery of magic when he was just 5 years old. Spending his summers just miles from the strip in Atlantic City, he saw every magic show in the area and was intent to master each trick and illusion on his own.

He has had his own show in Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood casino and brought a little bit of Jersey to the strip.

Turco has been a featured performer on the CW’s hit TV series, "Masters of Illusion" and can be seen around the country on the live tour.

Pendragon has performed at three Presidential Galas in Washington D.C., for the Queen of England, the Prince of Wales and the Royal Family of Monaco. At the turn of the millennium, MAGIC magazine created a list of the 100 most influential people in the history of 20th Century magic and he was one of only a handful of current performers named.

The World Magic Awards has twice named him “Best Illusionist” and also “Magician of the Year.” He has been a regular on the Masters of Illusion tour for the last 3 years as well as the hit TV series airing currently every Friday night in its third season on the CW.

Gleason was 13 when he happened upon a television special by magician Doug Henning. It was the day Gleason decided what he wanted to do with his life. Today, he is one of the top performing magicians in the world, doing shows worldwide.

In Las Vegas, he starred in “The Wizard’s Secrets” at the MGM Hotel and Casino, performing a record-breaking 9000 shows there. He also went on to star in “Gleason Magic – Embrace the Mystery” at the Venetian Hotel and Casino.

The International Magician’s Society named Gleason "Illusionist of the Year," and he was also awarded "Magician of the Year" at the World Magic Awards

Dillon is known for his regular appearances on three seasons of the "Masters of Illusion." He has been nominated for "Stage Magician of the Year" by the Magic Castle in Hollywood. He has toured in over 30 countries.
