Inside Magic Favorite, great guy and performer of the best Asrah Levitation ever, Rick Thomas begins his run tomorrow evening with an eight o’clock show.
Mr. Thomas puts on one of the best illusion shows we have ever seen, ever. He has such grace – perhaps from his youthful training as a champion ballroom dancer – and such energy – probably because he loves what he does – that audiences are naturally carried away.
He intends to be in Branson for a while.
“We don’t plan on just being here for this year, but for many years to come, and we have a lot more surprises to add to the 2015 show,” Mr. Thomas said. “I look forward to presenting a show twice as amazing as the show we presented last year and being truly secure with Branson and knowing that it is my goal and hope to be a major part of the entertainment industry for many years to come.”
After that, Thomas performed on cruise ships, as well as in Europe before beginning an extended run in Las Vegas. For 15 years straight, Thomas performed more than 500 shows every year.
“Being a magician, is quite the unique profession, it really is a strange profession,” he observed. “But it’s not about the magic, it’s about the people.”
In addition to performing throughout the world, Thomas was also awarded “Magician of the Year” by the Academy of Magical Arts and “Stage Magician of the Year” by the World Magic Awards.
Thomas has also been featured on numerous national TV specials, including “The World’s Greatest Magic” specials on NBC as well as his own special for ABC that aired in Asia. Thomas also headlined the “Masters of Illusion” show last year on the CW network.
Showtimes for “The Magic of Rick Thomas” are 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday through March with 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. shows various dates throughout December.
