It isn’t often that a Nashville , TN producer chooses to debut a new show in New York City , but that is exactly what producer and performer John B. Pyka has chosen to do. On March 20th he, along with co-writer and director Andy Still will launch The Club Roxy Revue at the Producer’s Club Theater in New York City. What sets the Club Roxy Revue apart is that it is full narrative magic musical that fuses magic and illusion, music, and dance in a story about revenge set in 1940s Chicago. It is an historic show in that it is the first full narrative magic musical to debut in New York since 1982 when Doug Henning starred in the Broadway musical Merlin. The show features award-winning magic and illusion, hit swing music from the mid 20th Century, and high energy dance, and a compelling story set in 1940s Chicago. Big Daddy Cool joins us to talk about his new show as well as to share his ideas on creativity in the presentation of magic.
