It's a hard trick to master, making a successful career as a magician. But for Joe Monti, who headlines tonight's special performance at the Muckenthaler Cultural Center, his talents are no illusion. As magic producer and senior consultant on Mindfreak starring Chriss Angel (we won't hold that against him), Monti knows the magic biz inside out and sideways—and we're excited to see him take the spotlight. Card tricks, magic scarves, flying curtains and disappearing acts—he's got all the classics down. Gather the family and head to Fullerton for an evening of wholesome, wide-eyed entertainment for all ages. Because if there's one thing we'll never get too old for, it's a great sleight of hand.
