Vaudevisuals interview with Mélissa Smith – “The Magician’s Assistant”

The Magician’s Assistant

Magician’s sick in bed?! Too bad! THE SHOW MUST GO ON! The Magician’s Assistant is a physical comedy about the transformative power of believing in yourself and asking for help. Everything seems under control until the Magician’s lovely Assistant blunders onstage and has to entertain the crowd in the magician’s absence. Clown Mélissa Smith switches characters with expert comedic flare, finding a delicate balance between chaos and control, vulnerability and confidence. Video projections and animation by Ingrid Larson add an extra dose of unexpected folly. The Magician’s Assistant encourages empathy, laughter and eating your veggies! The Magician’s Assistant makes its NYC premiere after playing across the Northeast. Audiences Old and Young have been delighted by this charming and hilarious romp.

Written and Performed by Mélissa Smith

Here is the show description from The New Victory:

This holiday season, experience the joyous spirit abundant in MOTHER AFRICA: MY HOME, a circus spectacular set in Cape Town’s largest township, Khayelitsha. Daring acrobats, jubilant dancers and mind-bending contortionists fill the New Victory stage when the sensational Drama Desk-nominated Circus der Sinne (Mother Africa, New Vic 2013) returns to NYC with electrifying live music and feats of extraordinary strength and dazzling skill. With performers representing African nations from Tanzania, Ethiopia and Zimbabwe, to South Africa and Ivory Coast, this radiantly rhythmic production exudes a palpable zest for life that will have the whole family on the edge of their seats—or, better yet, dancing in the aisles!

“Exuberant, high-energy entertainment.”The New York Times

I suggest you go see this show. It really is life changing experience.
