Making the Magic Happen: Nelson Lugo

Meet the Performers

Feb. 18 is going to be a magical night for many reasons, not the least of which because we have an actual magician joining us:

Nelson Lugo, ‘The Charming Trickster,’ is a magician, raconteur, former ringmaster, and burgeoning grifter. Known for heartfelt illusions and wry vaudevillian honesty he is a noted and celebrated performer in the underground NYC cabaret scene. Descended from a genuine Santeria, Nelson Lugo’s singular magical style showcases classic sleight of hand with a nod to the pop culture that has shaped him.
