Robert Ramirez is wearing tap shoes… and playing the piano…and singing while playing a ukulele. No, this isn't an audition backstage at the Benedum Center- it’s the newest song and dance and magic phenomenon at Liberty Magic. A professional magician and musical theater actor, Robert Ramirez starred in the National Tour of HAMILTON creator Lin-Manuel Miranda's first musical, IN THE HEIGHTS. He's performed in theaters all over the country including Pittsburgh's own Heinz Hall. As a Magician, he's appeared on Penn and Teller: FOOL US, and National Geographic's Brain Games. He took 1st place in 'Close Up' at the Texas Association Of Magic in 2017 and 2nd place in Strolling Olympics at the Magic Castle 2018- an unprecedented feat by a first time competitor. Rob has performed his illusions for the Super Bowl, Special Olympics, on television and film, and many stages throughout the world. Rob is considered one of the most exciting young original magicians to emerge in recent years. His original magic routines, many involving iPhone magic, are performed by some the nation's best know magical artists.
In this brand new production, created exclusively for Liberty Magic, Robert provides a mash up of magic and musical theater unlike anything seen in Pittsburgh before. His 70-minute tour-de-force promises costume changes, song & dance routines, humor and maybe even a disappearing piano. Be amazed by Robert's sleight-of-hand and fancy footwork.
