HE’S BACK: LAFAYETTE HOTEL PRESENTS ESCAPE ARTIST MICHAEL GRIFFIN, RETURNING MAGICIAN SET TO DAZZLE AND DROP JAWS APRIL 05.
MULTI-award winning escape artist and magician Michael Griffin IS SET TO UNLOCK AUDIENCE’S MINDS DURING SPECIAL PRESENTATION OF HIS ACCLAIMED ONE MAN SHOW 50 SHADES OF GREAT MAGIC.
MARIETTA, OH. (MICHAEL GRIFFIN) OCT 15, 2016 — 2 years ago as the show started, Griffin set up the crowd for something unexpected and asked his audience “Do you want to see something weird?” There was not a single “No” from the audience, and after our first time to see the popular escape artist, we know we’ll be yelling out “Yes” again next year. 2 years later, He’s coming back, 2X World Magic Award Winning Escape Artist Michael Griffin is bringing his 1man magic show “50 Shades Of Great” to the Lafayette Hotel Friday, April 05 7:00 PM as a special limited seating event in the all-new refurbished Gun Room.
” I really like you a lot!” – Howard Stern, America’s Got Talent
Escape Artist, Illusionist, mentalist, magician – whatever word you describe to use Michael Griffin doesn’t matter. What matters is that walking out of his intimate new show 50 Shades Of Great, you’ll leave with a smile on your face and countless questions starting with “How..” on your mind. Like all good artists, the ‘magic’ that really makes a Michael Griffin show is his showmanship, and the fun he can have with the crowd.
If you’re planning on heading along to Michael Griffin’s upcoming Lafayette Hotel date, you better prep yourself with the chance you’ll be pulled to stage (and barring that, we recommend picking a seat further back), because this show is full of audience participation, helping Griffin bring about that final ‘wow’ at the end of each trick.
Not being content with being a ‘one trick magic master’, Griffin’s 50 Shades Of Great has a bit of everything. The show starts with the unexpected, and evolves from there, with each new trick adding a new dimension, and an aspect to the illusion you hadn’t seen yet. To top it all off, he’s a funny, funny man.
While the show is aimed towards adults, every performance will undoubtedly have a few kids in the audience, and this is something that the magician deals with brilliantly. Getting the kids involved and having a huge laugh to pay it all off is a highlight of the show and one you’ll just have to head along yourself to see. The show’s finale is usually a breath-holding, spine-tingling finale too, with an impossibly visual intense escape unfolding in front of the audience’s eyes. All in all, the show is a stunner, action-packed and entertaining, making the audience interactive show fly by, leaving you with a taste for the magic arts, and a certain Michael Griffin return-customer.
The greatest living escape artist has some incredible career highlights:
• 1st Person to survive a legitimate hanging
• 1st Person to win The World Magic Awards twice in the same category
• Helped catch a murder suspect while tied up with rope
• Helped get 1200 people safely out of a burning building while tied up
• Ripley’s Believe It Or Not proclaimed him the Ultimate Escape Artist
• Escaped a solid steel hermetically sealed coffin
Griffin says “I’ve spent 30 years traveling the world setting records with daring escapes and narrow misses and the magic of the Lafayette Hotel keeps bringing me back to the Marietta area. The Lafayette Hotel, which by the way is reputed to be among Ohio’s most haunted places is the perfect site of my show 50 Shades Of Great April 05 at 7:00 PM. The seating is limited and I will be sharing some of the magic and escapes I’ve performed on TV appearances such as America’s Got Talent, Masters Of Illusion and Ripley’s and they are original and dangerous and can only be seen by a limited number of guests due to the small intimate venue.” Ticket Holders can be a part of his audience interactive show “50 Shades Of Great” Friday night 7:00 PM in The Lafayette Hotel located at 101 Front Street, Marietta, OH 45750 Tickets are available http://www.lafayettehotel.com/ or, by calling 740.373.5522
About 50 Shades Of Great Magic with Michael Griffin
Surviving a public hanging, performing astonishing escapes and setting records around the World for over two decades, the 2x World Magic Award Winner, featured on America’s Got Talent & appearing in Masters Of Illusion, presents a special audience interactive up close show unplugged demonstrating a new direction for the performer, featuring original mind experiments, intensely original magic mixed with impossible escapes all driven by comedy and audience interaction with surprises along the journey making this a must-see experience.
What’s the secret? It’s Griffin’s strong mind, conviction, heart, and belief. “I do not use drugs or alcohol. I never have and I never will. I simply do not believe in their illusion, nor the illusion of negative thinking which is the toughest straitjacket we will ever face; but, if you put your mind to it, and you believe in yourself, you will always escape”.
