Pigeon Forge, Tenn., March 5, 2015– “Magic Beyond Belief™,” starring Siegfried & Roy’s Protégé, nationally known magician Darren Romeo, “The Voice of Magic,” will open Saturday, March 7 in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., for a seven-month engagement through Oct. 25, 2015.
Romeo, a magician and a singer, will bring his critically acclaimed full-scale production to The Smoky Mountain Opry Theater in the 3 p.m. matinee time slot. The new show features tigers, large-scale original illusions, vocal performances, celebrity impersonations, comedy, and a huge tribute to the magicians who inspired him the most: Harry Blackstone Jr., and Romeo’s mentors, Siegfried and Roy.
Theater owner David Fee, president and chief executive officer of The Fee/Hedrick Family Entertainment Group said, “We can’t wait to open this astonishing magic show at The Smoky Mountain Opry Theater. Darren Romeo has a powerful mix of singing, incredible illusions, exotic animals and many surprises that make it a one-of-a-kind show. Prepare to be amazed! It will be a truly entertaining experience for the whole family.”
In addition to worldwide touring, Romeo starred in his own show as “Siegfried & Roy presents, Darren Romeo” at the Mirage Resort Hotel and Casino. He has also performed in Las Vegas at Caesars Palace and the Flamingo Hilton and at the world famous Magic Castle in Hollywood to name but a few.
One of the most awarded magicians in the history of magic, Romeo has garnered an extensive list of accolades including: “Magician of the Year” from the Magic Castle, The Academy of Magical Arts, Inc.; “Show of the Year” (2 years in a row) from the Branson Critic Association and the ”Milbourne Christopher Award for Notable Contributions to the Art of Magic” from The Society of American Magicians (SAM).
Recognizing the historical importance the “Art of Magic” has had throughout the centuries, Romeo will honor Harry Blackstone Jr.’s legacy by performing his famous “Floating Light Bulb” Illusion – the only magician in the world granted permission from the Blackstone family to perform this full tribute.
The New York Daily News called Romeo’s show “Irresistible” and the Las Vegas Review-Journal said it was “the most unique and compelling show to hit the strip in many years”, while Entertainment Today said his show was “Extraordinary. Fantastic!”
