Originally aired as an episode of “Nighttime With Ira” on March 22, 2012
This week, Ira Sternberg spoke with Magician Michael Turco, headlining in “Magic and Mayhem,” at 4 p.m. at the Saxe Theater, located inside the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
Turco fell in love with the mystery of magic when he was just 5 years old. Spending his summers just miles from the strip in Atlantic City, he saw every magic show in the area and was intent to master each trick and illusion on his own. Turco’s goal was to perform and have his name on the marquees of some of the top casinos in the world.
He has been with Masters of Illusion, the live international tour, for five years and has been a featured performer on the CW’s television version of “Master of Illusion.”
