"Great delivery, great story line that is told in a very honest way by Paul. On a magical level I absolutely loved the theatrics and storyline of this, and on a theatre going level it is something I would definitely recommend non-magicians go see." -Paul Romhany, *Reviews Vanish Magazine
Bigblindmedia and Stranger Media presents Paul Zenon in Linking Rings
A self-penned, semi-autobiographical theater piece marking a distinct change of direction for Paul Zenon, award-winning magician, comedian and actor who, in a career spanning four decades, has performed in around forty countries and made literally hundreds of network TV appearances. By far his most personal work to date.
About the show - 'Houdini's right-hand man deals with the death of his boss. A half century later, a Blackpool joke shop proprietor takes on a wide-eyed young protege. An affectionate look at a misspent youth and unsung heroes. Not a magic show, but magical nonetheless.'
Running time: 1 hour 7 minutes "A touching, deeply authentic, beautifully-made magic cabinet of theater-story. Outstanding and unmissable." - Fringe Review "Heartfelt and strikingly genuine... there's a warmth and charisma to Zenon's storytelling that just can't be faked." - The Stage "A contemporary master of his art." - The Times "Zenon's deceptive self-deprecation belies the precision and the sharpness of his warm wit... seeing will be believing." - The Guardian "A contemporary master of his art." - The Times "A love letter to a Blackpool magic shop... for magicians it is a veritable treat." - Magic Week "A beautifully crafted piece. Blunt and charming... amusing and touching."- Evening Standard "There's a rawness in his delivery, a heartfelt emotion." - Edinburgh Evening News "Zenon's affable nature shines through this honest and charming show. Artful storytelling... impressive deftness... so compelling." - Broadway Baby
