The Magic Castle features Rachel York


Magic Castle

Broadway star Rachel York will appear at The Magic Castle in Hollywood in an evening of stories and song, including favorites from the stage, screen, and American Songbook Sunday, July 26 and Monday, July 27. York is best known for her roles on Broadway in City of Angels, Les Misérables, Victor/Victoria (for which she won a Drama Desk Award), The Scarlet Pimpernel, Kiss Me, Kate, Sly Fox and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. She has also appeared in numerous roles on television and film, including playing Lucille Ball in the TV movie, Lucy.

Earlier this month, Jason Graae performed his new cabaret act, Magically Delicious in the Castle’s Inner Circle. The intimate setting makes a perfectly enjoyable evening out. Tickets cost $40 for non-members. Call 323-851-3313 x 434 for more information.

The Magic Castle is the world's most famous club for magicians and magic enthusiasts and home to The Academy of Magical Arts, Inc. It is the showplace for some of the greatest magicians from around the globe and houses one of the largest original collections of Houdini's great tools of the trade including his personal handcuffs, straight jacket, metamorphosis trunk and famous milk can escape.

The Castle began its life as a private home built in 1909 by banker and real estate magnate Rollin B. Lane. Mr. Lane owned much of what is now Hollywood, dreaming of turning his land into orange groves, farms and ranches. Unfortunately, a severe drought brought an end to his dream and orange blossoms never filled the valley.

Eventually, Milk Larson, the current owner of the Magic Castle, would turn the building into a private elegant club for magicians in honor of his father William W. Larsen, Sr., who himself had been a renowned magician.
