Poof! Secrets of a Magician

James Galea

Sydney Opera House, January 2020

POOF! – Secrets of a Magician is a unique mix of magic, music and stories, a show that ponders magic’s big questions – what ‘If I Really Could Do Magic’, what if ‘All Psychics Are C&*ts’, and ‘Are All Magicians Gay?’ Through wizardry, story and songs, James and his piano entertain, astound and peel back the curtain to reveal what happens when ‘Magic Goes Bad’. It’s a wild and witty cabaret from a master showman.
