There are certain names in Magic that immediately grab your attention. Marvyn’s Magic is just one such name. Now Marvyn’s Magic is the namesake for a newly launched Magic Theater in La Quinta, California. “From the moment you step inside expect to be dazzled by a magical experience.”
Jeff Hobson is the Producer and Director of Entertainment for Marvyn’s Magic Theater.
Who will you see at Marvyn’s Magic Theater?
How about Marvyn Roy, “Mr. Electric.” Now 94 years old and the draw that brought many of us into the world of Magic. He is the reason the theater was named for him.
“Mr. Hobson is is own inimitable self as he emcees the show dedicated to be a place he would’ve wanted to perform in if he were still traveling on the road as a magician.
Mr. Dobson told the local news outlet, Channel 3, “I traveled around the world,” he said. “I Spent 14 years on the strip of Las Vegas and I didn’t know what my home looked like and I had a friend, a local resident, Gary Bueller say if you ever want to open a place let me know. I turned him down for 12 years and finally he showed me La Quinta, feel in love with it and I said okay, time to get off the road, time to settle down and open up my own place.”
It is not an ordinary place.
“At Marvyn’s Magic Theater we want you to be unsure of yourself,” he said. “This quaint theater seats 129 people and is only for those 21 and older. There are mysteries to behold beyond the entertainment on stage.
Entertainers from Las Vegas, Broadway and all over the world will perform magic, grand illusion, escape magic, mentalism magic, close-up magic, hilarious comedy, prop comedy, joggling, ventriloquism and other kinds of performance art.
“You’ll never know what you’re going to get but it’s always going to be a great show,” Hobson said.
Showtimes are Wednesdays through Thursdays at 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday at 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m.
