Magic-Themed Theater to Open Downtown

Holy City Magic, a magic-themed theater, is scheduled to open at 49 ½ John Street next month. The theater’s grand opening is scheduled for August 16th and 17th. Howard Blackwell, who previously operated the “Charleston Magic Parlor” show at various venues across Charleston, is opening the new venue to provide a permanent home for magic downtown.

Holy City Magic will host magic, comedy, and variety shows featuring both stage performances and close-up magic at the bar.

"Adults only" evening shows will start with a cocktail hour where various magicians will entertain guests with close-up magic at the bar followed by an hour and a half stage performance, while matinees will be one-hour, family friendly shows. Both adult will be performed every weekend.

Blackwell and Boston Magician Dave Chandler will be performing together for the grand opening weekend. Tickets are on sale now.
