Ron Pearson’s Mystery Wonder

 

Review


Despite what some may think—that the most exciting part of a magic show comes with the trick itself—the real action is what’s going on around the sleeves. Performer Ron Pearson, in Ron Pearson’s Mystery Wonder Show, performs admirably at keeping the audience’s eyes where he wants them to go. But not every trick in the 45-minute performance is impossible to catch on to. Moving past the basic tricks—fake bottom in the back of the hat, or the transfer of an object from one hand to another stealthily—there a couple of head-scratchers in his routine. Pearson’s an old pro, having spent 30 years in the business. It’s no surprise that he adds something new into the mix to shake up the magic show formula. There’s a narrative that serves as a background to the tricks, with composer Erik Mortimer on the piano to add a dramatic or comedic cue for when the moment needs it. The show is also wordless, but the piano in the background, coupled with the physical energy of Pearson, give the audience enough of an idea of what’s going on plot-wise. Part comedic pantomime, part magic show, Ron Pearson’s Wonder Show is worth the watch—if not for solving the puzzle of how he does it alone. Reviewed by Tim Rauf.
