This week, Ira Sternberg spoke with Douglas “Lefty” Leferovich, producer and host of “Late Night Magic,” an adults only magic show, at the Alexis Park All-Suite Resort (Fridays and Saturdays at 11 p.m.). “Late Night Magic” is a magical variety show that features sideshow stunts, mentalism, visual and optical illusions, dirty jokes, and amazing manipulation. In this episode of Talk About Las Vegas, Douglas talks about magic coming to him at an early age; why he’s learned more from defeat than success; how his first foray into Las Vegas was a “Zoomanitizing” experience; how “Late Night Magic” evolved as a show for locals into a show for both visitors and locals; how it succeeded during COVID; and the future of magic in Las Vegas.
Native New Yorker Douglas Leferovich has been surrounded by magic all his life.
When he was four years old, he performed the changing silks for his pre-K class and a career was launched. The fascination with magic continued to grow and became a significant part of his life.
Over the past 10 years, Douglas has emerged as a force in Las Vegas entertainment as a result of his creativity and production expertise, consulting on more than a dozen headline shows in Las Vegas and performing in the Strip’s major casinos and hotels.
