Magician returns to El Portal Theatre July 15

| June 29, 2023 | 0 Comments

Hancock Park resident magician and mentalist Bernie Shine will be returning for his fourth show at the El Portal Theatre in North Hollywood on Sat., July 15 at 7:30 p.m.

Shine has been a prolific entertainer ever since his first appearance in the wizarding world in the 1970s when he started performing regularly in the Close-Up Room at the Magic Castle in Hollywood.

A fan friend and Windsor Square neighbor of Shine observed after the magic man’s recent show in the intimate small auditorium at the El Portal: “You will be asking yourself this question — and perhaps many more — when you chuckle with amazement at the magic and comedy of the inimitable Bernie Shine: ‘How does he do it?’”

Shine performs sleight of hand that amazes, as well as incredible mentalism, often with surprise audience participation. The audiences regularly include other artist and magician friends of the performer, and these guests sometimes are almost as entertaining as what takes place center-stage.

Shine’s shows are not for youngsters; the experience is more like a cocktail party that breaks out into a show.
