Michael Grandinetti is one of the illusionists being featured on the show. For the CW series , Michael filmed several of his large-scale and audience interactive illusions, including the “360 Degree Levitation”, “Mid-Air Vanish”, and “Rosebush Through Time.” For his performance of “Walking Through Steel”, Michael was assisted by American Idol and Broadway star Ace Young, who examined the 7ft tall, 200lb metal barrier closely. Michael also recreated a historical piece of magic, first performed by Orson Welles in the 1940’s, utilizing borrowed items and members of the audience.

Check back here next week for an interview with Grandinetti. Until then, enjoy tonight’s series premiere of Masters of Illusion airing at 8/7c on the CW.
