Anomaly: The Magic of Robby Bennett and Other Curiosities
Houston-based Master Illusionist Robby Bennett brings the electrifying spectacle of magic, acrobatics, comedy and more to The Tobin Center for the Performing Arts for one show only on Saturday, Aug. 3 at 7:30 p.m. His mesmerizing show combines elements of fantasy and comedy, and offers timeless appeal to audiences of all ages.
Bennett’s spellbinding routines leave audiences emotionally charged, astounded, and laughing to tears. As he performs, Bennett narrates amazing magical feats with gripping stories and hilarious anecdotes. His performance will alter your conception of time and the impact of your own imagination. He takes a volunteer from the crowd and turns him or her into a genuine magician with routines and production in a matter of minutes.
Unlike what you might expect from a typical “magic show,” Bennett creates the perfect blend of fantasy and comedy. He makes the typical evening of theatre disappear as he takes the stage with routines involving metaphor, allegory and powerful storytelling.
Bennett began performing professionally at the age of 12 and has performed from the Las Vegas Strip to New York to East Africa. He brings an unapologetic wit to his performances that sets him apart from his contemporaries and makes his astonishing skills truly unforgettable. As “Magic’s Leading Man” he takes the stage with a presence and skill set that brings audiences to their feet in applause.
In addition to Bennett’s captivating illusions, “Anomaly” features the artwork of internationally-acclaimed visual artist Jumper Maybach (The Louvre, The Jumper Maybach Story) as design elements of the show. Having been called “The Jackson Pollock of the 21st century,” Maybach’s abstract artwork adds to the unique personality of the show and makes this an even more wide-ranging partnership with a distinct appeal.
Whether you’re looking for a unique family outing or want to impress a date, Anomaly offers the perfect solution. Illusions that the world has never seen are presented for the first time on stage, up so close that you’ll feel like you can reach out and touch what your eyes can’t believe!
