In December of 1972, something magical happened at Three Rivers Stadium and to this day, spectators are unsure just how it transpired. Through some combination of skill, chance, and miracle, Steelers fullback Franco Harris recovered a fumbled ball and pulled the team from the depths of sure defeat, scoring a game-winning touchdown with 30 seconds on the clock. One of the greatest plays of all time – The Immaculate Reception.
Drawing inspiration from our city’s history of miraculous moments, Eric Jones, Liberty Magic’s Inaugural Magician, and Artistic Advisor, returns for a third residency with a brand new show. Featuring perplexing prestidigitation created with Pittsburgh in mind, this premiere production is sure to amaze and inspire. Don’t take your eye off the ball… or the card… or the coin… You just might catch The Immaculate Deception.

He has appeared on Comedy Central, on The CW’s Masters of Illusion, successfully fooled Penn and Teller on the hit show Fool Us, and was among the final 12 contestants on season 12 of America’s Got Talent.
