Joe M. Turner’s Shenanigans Opens!

Quinlan's Inside Magic fave Joe M. Turner was kind enough to tip us on early plans to produce an one-man show, Shenanigans.  He hoped to have it up and running right around now.

As usual, Mr. Turner was punctual and successful.

We hear the premiere last Thursday went very well.  The venue couldn't be better.  He is performing at the very beautiful Grand Hyatt Atlanta in Buckhead.  Mr. Turner's two shows (7:00 pm and 9:00 pm) were well-attended and made the Hyatt management very happy.

Mr. Turner describes his performance as something akin to "a club act" rather than a "theatrical or a parlor show."

While it would have been nice to put on a full-fledged parlor show, Mr. Turner had to modify his plans to accommodate some of the Hyatt's needs.

The show is presented in an intimate environment in a restaurant.  The audience can enjoy drinks, desserts, coffee or Diet Coke, prior to the show.

Sounds perfect.

We have no idea how he will fit this within his already jammed schedule and travel around the hemisphere.  Still, if Mr. Turner says he will perform in a given venue at a given time, he will be there performing — and that's a given. 

We're guessing his dependability and professionalism probably have something to do with his tightly scheduled calendar.  As much as clients want to hire popular magicians, they prefer popular magicians who will show up as scheduled. 

Currently, Mr. Turner plans to perform the show on a monthly basis but as the word disseminates through the Greater Atlanta area, we're pretty sure he'll have to add shows. 

The magicians of Atlanta, including the incomparable Dan Garrett attended to not only show their support but to be entertained.  (See our corrected, republished, corrected, and published again review of Mr. Garrett's lecture here).
