July 22 , 7:00 pm
Sleight of hand artist and author Allan Zola Kronzek will bring history and mystery to the Southampton Arts Center.
Part illustrated talk and part magic performance, Kronzek will examine the lives of eight iconic Jewish performers and the impact that they had on the culture of their times and the world of magic.
Among the curious topics: How a Polish immigrant launched a national mania for sawing women in half; how a 16th-century Renaissance engineer shaped the art of card magic; and how the son of a Hungarian rabbi became the highest paid entertainer in the world.
