The shows returned in a big way to the Lied Center for Performing Arts on Saturday. Both appearances by magician Mike Super were sold out.

More specifically, almost every ticket that was available under the song’s socially distant seating plan was sold for both the afternoon and evening performances. That’s somewhere close to 550 people per show, or about 1,100 total, which would be half a house if the song were at full capacity.

“I’m getting used to it,” said Super after the show at 2pm. “I’ve been doing this kind of socially distant show for four or five months now. It still works and I had a lot of fun. “

So did the audience, who got a show of “magic and illusion” from one of the best in the business, who despite wearing a mask and the need to keep a distance between himself and the volunteers he took out of the audience fast moving, funny “how did he do that?” Performance.

The highlights of the show included: A little boy named Jaden who almost staged Super during the opening game – “It’s a silly card trick for you,” Super told him. “It’s a career for me.” – a levitation in which a woman was hovering three feet above the song stage and a “voodoo magic” that the male volunteers spread when Super poked a voodoo doll in the side with a stick.
