[Updated to correct the days per week Siegfried will be performing]
When we first joined the prestigious Magic Castle / Academy of Magical Arts in beautiful Hollywood, California, we were befriended by Siegfried Tieber.
He frequented the lower rooms of the Castle where performers could get time to be in front of real audiences. He was kind and helpful in helping to shave the rough spots out of our pretty rough act.
But more than a nice and helpful guy, Siegfried showed audience after audience that he was a true magician. He had skills – of course – but he had charm and charisma to make it appear that the audience and Siegfried were experiencing the miracles together.
He took his act to Downtown LA in his solo show See/Saw and it was consistently sold out.
Before we go any further, check out his website here. It is one of the prettiest we have ever seen for a magician or any person.
The great news is that he is returning on October 3rd with a new show, Red Thread.
He’ll be performing for no more than 34 audiences members at a time and tickets will go for $74.00. Siegfried will perform six shows a week in four nights with one show on Thursdays and Fridays; and two shows on Saturdays and Sundays.
Siedgfried has been seen not only by hundreds, nay, thousands at the Castle, but nationwide on Penn & Teller’s Fool Us show where he did in fact fool them.
He told reporters Red Thread is “an exploration of chance and chaos. Every outcome is the starting point of further possibilities.”
“It doesn’t take long before this starts to look like a labyrinth: some paths converge, some run parallel to each other, some are dead ends. Like the Greek mythological princess, Ariadne — who gave Theseus a thread when he entered the labyrinth — my hope is to take the audience with me and guide them through this journey.”
