Oscar, Renzo & Mara Open Europe’s Only All-Magic Theater

We're sure many of you receive The Sur, the
appropriately named newspaper covering southern Spain.  For those one or two that do not, we're happy
to pass along news of a brand new magic venue.

The Sur reporter, Carmen Perez, notes with the opening of
the new Magic Palace in Torremolinos, it holds the
distinguished honor of being the only European theater "to be used solely
for magic." 

Dutch magicians Oscar, Renzo, and Mara opened the theater last
weekend and served as the first act on the new stage. 

How did they do? 

From our read of the story, we'd say they brought the house
down while the audience was rolling in the aisles.  (We are, like, so metaphorically
challenged.  We wanted to find a clever
way of saying they made their audience laugh, applaud, and astounded the
critics.  But we couldn't so we mixed the
metaphor and poured out a sentence one could read to mean patrons were
convulsing while the building collapsed). 

The three magicians are just young whippersnappers — 22 to
25 – but they've been around the block a time or two.  The team has its own show in Holland,
toured Monaco and Vegas, and
even worked Korea. 

When we were between the ages of 22 to 25, we saw a lot of
the world as well but that was not because of our skill.  While we have many regrets about those years
we worked as former silent screen star Mary Pickford's Boy-Toy, seeing the
world isn't one of them.  (One of our
many regrets, however, still haunts us. 
We have a Pavlov-like response to the smell of Dr. Schol's Corn-Removing
Medicated Pads.  The aroma brings back
the insidious conflict between youthful excitement and a dire sense of
obligation and a loveless physical relationship).

The Sur exclaims:

There is nothing that these young
people can’t do – at least that is the impression they give the audience.
Escaping from a box in the middle of the stage and appearing among the
spectators; producing a whole shower of cards from thin air and float ing on
air are just some of the tricks that leave the audience open-mouthed and
wondering how on earth they do it. The staging and production are excellent,
with music and lights, special effects and touches of humour and drama.

The troupe hails from a magic family.  Hans Kazan – a famous magician and television
star in Holland
– is Oscar and Renzo's dad and Mara's father-in-law.

The Kazan
family has been living on the Costa del Sol
for five years. They like the climate, the people and, above all, “the fact
that it is an area with a lot of tourists passing through”, said Hans, adding
that these are the reasons why he decided to open his theatre in Torremolinos.
Oscar, Renzo and Mara “have spent ten years travelling the world and that is
very tiring”, explained the young men’s father.

 

The young magicians will be
presenting their show, with introductions in English and Spanish, at Magic Palace
from Wednesdays to Mondays, with two shows a day in high season, for 11 months
of the year. For one month every year they will be working abroad.
