Magician Stuart MacDonald brings a new show to the Croswell Opera House

Magician Stuart MacDonald is pictured performing his act at the 2018 Fédération Internationale des Sociétés Magiques (FISM) World Championships in Busan, South Korea.  MacDonald has two shows Dec. 17 at the Croswell Opera House in his hometown of Adrian.

ADRIAN – As has happened to many other people, magician Stuart MacDonald found himself having to orient himself to a new way of working after the pandemic hit.

After everything came to a standstill, including his world tour, in early 2020 and after “twiddling my thumbs” for a while, Adrian native and internationally acclaimed magician developed an online show with a character he created: magician Richard Preston. Croswell Virtual Audience got to meet Preston later that year in a series of shows.

Preston has proven to be a huge hit with magic lovers far and wide.

“I’ve become one of the best virtual magicians in the world,” MacDonald said. “People from as far away as Korea were watching.”

Over time, there have been four different versions of the show. And then the CW network called, wanting MacDonald (and Preston) on “Masters of Illusion.” The recording aired last season.
