June 1 – 19, 2022
Liberty Magic, Tickets start at $34.19
Joshua Messado started Messado Magic over 20 years ago at the Houdini’s magic theatre in Atlantic City, NJ. There he found his passion for performing and discovered the linking rings, which is now his signature effect. Messado Rings are now a staple in the magic community known as “Ringistry”. So, what is Ringistry? It’s the artistry of the linking rings. A standard of magic performed in a way you’ve never seen before. A modern interpretation of an ancient craft that highlights the cool in the classics, the suave in sleight of hand and the inspiration inherent in witnessing the impossible.

June 1 – 19, 2022
In 1969, as the civil rights movement ignites across America, Memphis faces a battle of his own in Pittsburgh where the city wants to raze his Hill District restaurant for an urban renewal project. As the world faces rapid change, Memphis and his regular customers fight to keep a sense of order and dignity as they each take a leap of faith. Some of them bet on love, or luck, or justice. And some of them only trust the mystical advice of a 349-year-old Aunt Ester in this wise, funny, and achingly beautiful play that’s brimming with local history and legendary language.
