The Salute to Magic, the big annual show put on by the Parent Assembly of the S. A. M. will be presented this coming Saturday, May 17
The bill includes:
Jay Scott Berry (also Master of Ceremonies)
and David Oliver
Sol Stone will be honored as Magician of the Year.
Jeff McBride is the headline act of the show, and it's relatively rare that he performs in the New York City area these days. It will be a good opportunity to see him perform an extended set.
This year the event is tied in with the official celebrations of the anniversaries of the 1939 and 1964 World's Fairs, and there will be a focus on the role of magic at those Fairs, including an appearance by Kamarr, who appeared in Mark Wilson's Hall of Magic at the 1964 Fair.
The show is being held at the Queens Theatre, which is accessible by public transportation. For more information or to buy tickets:
