Ryan’s magic show re­ceives rave re­views

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Staff re­porter

A Castlemilk ma­gi­cian is selling out shows at one of Glas­gow’s most iconic ho­tels.

Ryan David­son’s In­ti­mate magic show, Lit­tle Mys­ter­ies, is con­tin­u­ing its sell-out run as it passes the half­way point of a one-year res­i­dency at the Glas­gow Grand Cen­tral Ho­tel.

The sleight- of- hand artist and ma­gi­cian has al­ready per­formed 20 shows to au­di­ences of no more than 15 in the last six months.

And the 29- year- old’s weekly per­for­mances are re­ceiv­ing rave re­views – as well as un­stop­pable de­mand for tick­ets.

De­scribed by au­di­ence mem­bers as ‘as­tound­ing’, ‘ mind- blow­ing’ and ‘a must-see’, Lit­tle Mys­ter­ies gives smaller au­di­ences a unique op­por­tu­nity to wit­ness close- up magic, and hear the unique nar­ra­tive that goes along­side.

The for­mer St Mar­garet Mary’s pupil, who has stud­ied the art of de­cep­tion for the last decade, said: “The show has done even bet­ter than I could ever have imag­ined.

“I re­ally en­joy per­form­ing to a more in­ti­mate au­di­ence as they get to see ev­ery­thing as closely as pos­si­ble and re­ally feel part of the show.

“It’s al­ways been an am­bi­tion of mine to have a reg­u­lar show in Glas­gow, and Grand Cen­tral was my first pick in terms of a venue – it’s iconic, fa­mous through­out the city and has the vibe I was look­ing for to fit with the show. I was de­lighted when they agreed to let me per­form ev­ery Satur­day night for the full year. This is my third one-man show, and it’s def­i­nitely been third time lucky.”

Graeme Gib­son, gen­eral man­ager of Grand Cen­tral Ho­tel, said: “Hav­ing Ryan per­form regularly was an easy de­ci­sion for us, de­spite this be­ing the first res­i­dency we’ve of­fered since re­open­ing.

“The show is slick and un­der­stated, but evokes a great re­ac­tion and is mem­o­rable for ev­ery­one who goes along to watch – so was the per­fect fit for the ho­tel.

“Those com­ing to the ho­tel for the show can en­joy din­ner and drinks with us be­fore or af­ter each per­for­mance – ei­ther in Tem­pus or Cham­pagne Cen­tral. We’ve had some won­der­ful feed­back so far, and look for­ward to wel­com­ing even more peo­ple to Grand Cen­tral for the next six months of Lit­tle Mys­ter­ies.”

Lit­tle Mys­ter­ies is per­formed by Ryan David­son ev­ery Satur­day evening from 7pm at Grand Cen­tral Ho­tel, Glas­gow.
