Magic from the Twilight Lodge – Virtual Magic Show By Vincenzo Ravina
Vincenzo Ravina has been performing his new show for 2021 and looks really good. "Magic from the Twilight Lodge". Love the title and it all sounds very mysterious and intriguing - very Twin Peaks! I previously attended and reviewed his "Savour the Sea from a Distance" show and I really enjoyed it. I may even book this one as he is excellent. The time for the show on Saturday April the 17th is really UK friendly at 2000 BST. Tickets are purchased via eventbrite and are advertised as pay what you can. Payments in Canadian dollars. Official write up below: About this Event "Beautifully done... You got so much out of this."
- Penn Jillette, Penn & Teller
"Truly remarkable magic."
- Mark Robins, Halifax Presents
"Loved the show... Brilliant. I have never seen anything like that."

Hello, my name is Vincenzo Ravina. I'm a magician and... a collector of weird stuff.
In this unusual interactive show, I'll invite you into a pocket universe, a dimension beyond that which is known to humankind, and take you on a guided, interactive tour of my collection of magical artifacts. During our tour of the Twilight Lodge, we'll bestow luck to the unlucky, see what's inside the Anything Box, try to divine the future, and maybe even test out a Coincidence Machine.
Magic from the Twilight Lodge is absurd and fun and unlike other magic shows you're likely to see.
As an audience member, you'll be participating and making choices that alter the course of the experience all the way through. You'll need a working camera and microphone to participate. Tickets are per household, so bring your friends and family along!
You will be emailed a Zoom link before the day of the event. If you do not get the Zoom link, please email vravina (at) gmail (dot) com.
Q: How does this actually work?
A: You buy a ticket (Pay What You Can) and a day before the event, I'll send you the Zoom link! On the day of the event, you join the Zoom meeting and I take you on a tour of weird magical artifacts. At several points during the show, I'll ask people to unmute to participate in the show, perhaps by choosing a number or colour, flipping a coin, or by playing a game with me. Their choices will affect the course of the show. The show runs about 40 - 50 minutes.
Q: How much should I pay for a ticket?
A: It's completely up to you. If you want to grab a ticket for a dollar, go for it. I don't mind. I'd love to have you at my show.
Q: Do I need one ticket for each person?
A: No, the tickets are per device, so however many people you can crowd around your computer screen is OK!
Q: Do I need to download Zoom?
A: Yes, please! Download it before the show at https://zoom.us/download. If you already have it downloaded, for the best experience, I recommend checking that your Zoom app is updated. I also suggest you attend the show on your computer rather than a phone, and have a direct ethernet connection to your computer or try to be close to your wireless router to avoid laggy internet.
Q: Is this show for kids?
A: Though the show is not inappropriate for children, the magic is not directed toward children, and is best enjoyed by adults who appreciate the absurd.
Q: Do I have to be on camera?
A: No, but the show is much better if you are! I promise that no audience member is insulted, embarrassed, or made fun of during the show. And if you do participate, you won't be doing anything too difficult: you won't be asked to do math or recite Shakespeare. If you can play tic-tac-toe, that's about as complicated as things get.
Q: Is the show any good?
A: I don't know, but here's what some total strangers who have seen the show have said:
"Truly remarkable magic."
"Thank you for thoroughly blowing our minds!"
"Imaginative, well written, with some strong magic moments."
Q: My alarm clock keeps screaming and bleeding?
A: That's great to hear. You sound like exactly the kind of person who should come to my show!
Q: Are you available for private bookings?
A: I sure am! Email me at vravina (at) gmail (dot) com.
Q: I would like to buy you a cup of coffee.
A: That's not a question, but, you certainly can! PayPal me at email@example.com
Q: I have a question that is not on this list.
A: Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll be happy to answer it!
