Tanya Solomon, one of stage magic’s few female professionals, is making Asheville one of the stops on the first national tour of her solo show “Tanya Solomon: Truth Assassin”.
The show, which premiered at New York ‘s Voorhees Theater in 2016, is a one-woman show emphasizing magic as entertainment for intelligent adults. This hour of startling effects includes baffling sleight-of-hand, costumes changed in a flash, blindfold targeting with a knife, and live fish appearing from nowhere. Solomon creates comedy out of the interaction between the magician as self-proclaimed liar and the rational expectations of the audience. Logic and laws of nature guaranteed violated!
Tanya Solomon, who lives in Brooklyn, is a magician who is a regular presence in New York City’s variety and burlesque scene, and produces the monthly Brooklyn revue “Force Majeure Vaudeville”. She has been a cast member of the Coney Island Circus Sideshow and the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus. www.tanyasolomon.net
The show is directed by Corn Mo, a musician and variety artist who has toured with Nick Offerman, They Might Be Giants, his own bands .357 Lover and Tragedy, and many others.
