Master of magic, illusions, and jazz, Jonathan Sky dazzles onstage in his current show, “Rhapsody,” at the 2017 Hollywood Fringe Festival. Billed as “50 minutes of musical magic,” this show has all the elements to wow the crowd, including 12 magical vignettes involving card tricks; invisible spheres and a myriad of ‘out of the box’ delights.
All in attendance were in awe of Sky’s extraordinary sleight of hand, with audience interaction an intrinsic part of the show. His mesmerized audience anticipated each trick with bated breath, wondering the hidden secret that was never fully revealed. His opening act, the New Orleans poker gambler, was a standout, revealing his wizard genius skills on the trumpet. It is easy to see how Jonathan Sky can easily join the ranks of illusionist masterminds, the likes of Houdini. This one man show not only provides mystifying magic, soothing music, but also a theatrical flair of the unexpected, just what we so need right now.
