Star of “The Carbonaro Effect” to perform at MGM Resorts International’s Mid-South resort

08 January 2020

TUNICA, Miss. – Magician and performance bizarrist Michael Carbonaro returns to the road with his highly-acclaimed national theater tour, “Michael Carbonaro Live!” with a stop at Gold Strike Casino Resort’s Millennium Theatre on Friday, Feb. 28, at 8 p.m.    

Michael Carbonaro has performed over 500 comically perplexing and improbable feats of magic on his hit TV series, “The Carbonaro Effect” on truTV.  A trickster at heart, Carbonaro performs inventive tricks on unsuspecting members of the public who are unaware that he is a magician.  Jaws drop when he causes a car to disappear from under a security guard’s nose or makes alien crabs transform into kittens in a science lab.  Whether posing as a coffee shop barista, museum curator, or seemingly unremarkable store clerk, Carbonaro’s illusions – along with his absurd, matter-of-fact explanations – leave real people bewildered and families at home laughing out loud.

And now, he is taking his popular theater show back on the road so more families can feel the effect of “Michael Carbonaro Live!” The show is jam-packed with audience interaction, hilarious video clips and a whirlwind of mind-blowing magic performed live on stage. Michael has been named “Magician of the Year” by the Academy of Magical Arts and was presented with the first-ever “Copperfield Prize,” recognizing an individual for elevating the art of magic.

Tickets are $39.95, $59.95 and $69.95 plus tax and facility fees. Purchase tickets online or by calling the Gold Strike Box Office at 888.747.7711.
