Many years ago, John Wright once owned a catering business to Hollywood movie and TV sets. During that time, John (aka Johnny Magic) was also a frequent performer at the Magic Castle. In fact, his picture is one of those featured in the Norm Nielsen book, "The Magic Castle Walls of Fame" along with a short bio. A few years ago he settled in Austin and in December 2013 opened his theater in a building that also houses and displays his magic collection: Magic's Theater of Illusion & Museum. He was also on the set with many television shows, in particular "Fantasy Island" where he got to meet and rub shoulders with some of the greatest actors and actresses of our time who guest starred on the show. Many of those friends appear in photos on the walls.

On Saturday nights he offers a family stage show (or sometimes two shows) but he recently expanded the building to include a close-up gallery where they now feature close-up magic on Friday nights. It is worth the drive and contains some rather important magic artifacts and ephemera. On this week's podcast you can take a virtual tour with your ears as Johnny guides us through his collection and describes many of the stories and background of much of his collection.
