Dance, magic dance! Rounding out my all thing mystical, spooky AND magical IS a magician. Lee Terbosic joins Marta On The Move for a most engaging interview. We are all in love with magic since birth. Isn't everything you experience early in life magical? As we age, we start to lose that sense of everyday magic. Luckily, for that, there are magicians out there that still offer that sense of wonder, that unexplainable moment, or trick that you can't explain. There is a reason Harry Potter is one of the most popular stories of all time. We all love it!!!!
I have been waiting to get a magician on my show for quite a bit, and I saw the perfect opportunity when I found out that a famous, local Pittsburgh magician was going to try and recreate the incredible escape stunt that Harry Houdini performed in 1916 in downtown Pittsburgh! Lee Terbosic has been planning about plotting for years to pull this off. 100 years since Houdini performed it, in the same spot, at the same time, on the same date. Nothing lines up that perfectly in life, nothing. It was meant to be for Lee. Lee has been traveling the globe as an entertainer and magician. Selling out shows left, and right, he was featuring on America's Got Talent,
Lee's stunt was incredible, and I am so fortunate to have met him, and gotten to go deep behind what motivates him to do what he does. I have not met a more passionate, driven, nice person, WHO also happens to be incredible at magic. He blew my mind with tricks right in front of me, and rekindled my childhood awe and wonder. It is always there, but sometimes you need something so light, that reminds you not to take this game of life so seriously.
Please join in this amazingly, awesome and introspective chat, I think I cried at some point... Did I just admit that?
Congrats, Lee, and well done!! I am so happy to have met you! Check him out on all media @leeterbosic and his incredible show called Bamboozled!
Hey you, yes you!
Please take a moment to rate and review my show on iTunes! Pretty please! Thank you so much!
Welcome to the lead up to Halloween on Marta On The Move! I love this time of year, and truly enjoy featuring all things mystery, spooky and festive! Therefore, I bring to you Enter The Imaginarium, an escape room that recently opened in Harmarville created by a collaboration between The Scarehouse and Bricolage. How can someone not be excited for this? I ask you!
I am a huge fan of escape rooms and immersive theater, so I could not wait to sit down with Jeffery Carpenter and Scott Simmons to chat behind the scenes of this venture. We talk about everything that goes into creating an escape room, why they decided to make one, what is in store for the next one (Yes, there will be more!), and also talk some clues for this particular room, and the mysteries surrounding D. Sykes, and the minotaur legends. MUAHA.
Enter The Imaginarium is giving away a free ticket for this episode! Simply tag two friends in the comments to be entered in the drawing!
On another note, I did not make it out of this room, I am super sad about it, but am still thinking about how gorgeous the sets and rooms were for Imaginarium. I wanted to hang out in there all day and investigate the sets. The amount of dedication and work that went into this... sheesh.
Stay tuned for an in depth look with Scott Simmons from The Scarehouse coming up after this episode! A very cool conversation about all things scary ;) Also, keep a look out for the 2nd annual True Spooky Stories of Pgh episode with my good friend John Schalcosky! Always a great time. If you missed our 1st annual one, check it out here! Or tune into the episode with House Of The Dead with Geoff Camphire, Tom Savini, or psychic Leslie Gray!
This episode is sponsored by Pittsburgh Winery ! One of the best date nights in the city. Go grab a glass of vino, and listen to a great band. Their space is truly unique! Check out the episode I had with owner Tim Gaber
