Laguna Playhouse Presents: Michael Gutenplan
Laguna Playhouse is thrilled to announce that master magician, mentalist and third generation psychic MICHAEL GUTENPLAN, will present a special family-friendly, virtual magic and mentalism show, LIVE via ZOOM, on Saturday, April 24, 2021 at 7:30pm PST.
100% interactive, this streamed show is filled with incredible magic, mentalism, mind reading and lots of laughter, and is designed to bring families and friends together for a fun and amazing one-of-a- kind experience! “We are such fans of the art of magic and could not be more excited to bring the extraordinary talents of Michael Gutenplan to our audiences,” comments Laguna Playhouse Artistic Director Ann E. Wareham and Executive Director Ellen Richard. “It does not take a mind-reader to know that this is going to be a wonderful evening that the whole family can enjoy together!”
Michael’s award-winning magic and mentalism will energize, enthrall, and entertain you. With over 20 years of professional experience, Michael knows how to engage and entertain the most sophisticated and skeptical audiences. He has performed at the world-famous Magic Castle in Hollywood, Off-Broadway in his critically-acclaimed one-man show “Extraordinary Deceptions,” in “The Spy Magic Show” in Washington, DC., and at clubs and events across the nation with “The Members Only Show.”
The Los Angeles Times raves: “Gutenplan’s expertise with cards is evident. However, most impressive are his mind reading abilities.” “Captivating… Michael is a youthful, old-fashioned magician, working with cards, money and minds (he reads them). He also requests a helper for almost every trick, a practice that delights most magic fans under 18, if not their more-shy elders,” raves The New York Times.
