Poof! It’s magic! I’m now among the most talented journalists in the nation. Ha! I wish it worked that easily. Alex Ramon wouldn’t have any problem with this, however, since in his profession of magic, he’s on top right now. Raised in Richmond, Ramon developed a passion for magic at age 13 after learning a few card tricks. He continued on this path, performing at parties and receiving awards and titles while still in his teens. Keeping on the wavelength of success, Ramon has toured worldwide with Disney LIVE! presents “Mickey’s Magic Show,” performed for Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey and is now focused on his own Lake Tahoe show, ‘Illusion Fusion.’ Fortunately, Ramon alakazams his way to our neighborhood on Wednesday, July 31, at Marin Center Showcase Theatre. 10 Avenue of the Flags, San Rafael. $25. 7pm. 415.499.6800.
