During coronavirus folks can’t attend The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust’s magic parlor, Liberty Magic, so the Trust has created a little magic of their own. Liberty Magic @ Home is a series of live streaming performances by top magicians. Tonight at 7:30 p.m., the Trust will be live streaming the second free Liberty Magic @ Home show, hosted by Zoe Ruth, venue manager of Liberty Magic, on their YouTube channel and Facebook page. The live stream will feature magicians Chris Capehart and Jon Tai. Master magician Capehart is known for transforming century’s old magical props, like the linking rings, into contemporary, up-close illusions. Tai is a Pittsburgh native who had a previous very successful run at Liberty Magic. His act concentrates on card magic and mentalism. Both Tai and Capehart are slated to perform at Liberty Magic this fall.
