POOF! Secrets of a Magician

An outrageous cabaret of wizardry, music and comedy that peels back the magician’s curtain.

Master showman James Galea reveals all in a hilarious, confessional adults-only show that poses questions-in-song such as Are All Magicians Gay? and spills the tea on the enigmas of magic and psychics, from the fall-out when chicanery goes wrong to what happens when you know all the secrets and lose touch with the magic in your own life.

With infectious energy, a deft touch with a grand piano and awe-inspiring sleight of hand, actor and magician Galea spearheads a new brand of modern magic show. He’s wowed Ellen DeGeneres and Richard Branson, headlined Hollywood and Las Vegas, starred in ABC TV series Best Trick Ever, and helmed smash-hit magic supergroup Band of Magicians (Sydney Festival 2014).

Galea returns to Sydney with a confessional musical cabaret about his journey as a magician, revealing what makes him and his vast repertory of tricks tick.
