Presented by Eclipse Production Studios Inc, Secrets & Illusions is the creation of Ivan Amodei, who has helmed the critically acclaimed show Intimate Illusions which is in its 9th year in residence at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Los Angeles.

Secrets & Illusions is set in the dark and deserted streets of Paris where the audience will hear an enchanting musical muse who will transport them through galleries, while Mr. Amodei uncovers life’s greatest mysteries deep inside the priceless work of art, one dazzling illusion at a time.  This immersive experience has been described by The Boston Globe as “Magic with a Message!” The 90-minute spectacle displays Ivan’s signature style of thought-provoking vignettes, audience participation and storytelling at its most entertaining.

Hailing from Sicily, Italy, Amodei moved to the U.S. at an early age with his family and was raised in Brooklyn, NY.  In 1989, he became a regular performer at the legendary Magic Castle in Hollywood.  In 2005, he won first place at the International Brotherhood of Magicians Close-Up Competition as well as the People’s Choice Award.  He published “Magic’s Most  Amazing Stories” in 2010 which was nominated by ForeWord Review for Book of the Year.  On New Year’s Eve, 2010, Ivan appeared as a guest entertainer at the Four Seasons Beverly Wilshire Hotel which was such a success it led to an open-run of his show, Intimate Illusions.  In 2016, he appeared on the season finale of “Penn & Teller: Fool Us and gained  more recognition with his original illusion ‘State of Mind’.

The Wall Street Journal recently said that “The ancient art of magic and illusion that asks audiences to believe the unbelievable, seems to be all the rage on the stage.”. Ivan Amodei and Secrets & Illusions will certainly add to the enormous popularity of the genre as it tours the country from coast to coast
