Cheating Death: Magic, Memoirs & Mortality

Written and performed by Nelson Lugo, this hilariously sad dark comedy is a personal examination of one magician's life - or more specifically - his many brushes with death. The often times funny yet raw vulnerability in the stories is heightened by the wonder, intimacy, and sometimes danger of the classically performed parlour magic. The result is a joyful celebration of life and all of its varied deaths. CHEATING DEATH reminds those of us on this side of the dirt that learning to find happiness, not in spite of, but because of sadness, is the most powerful magic we can create.

For those of us on this side of the dirt, learning to find happiness, not in spite of, but because of sadness, is the most powerful magic we can create.
