Federal Hill’s Magical Main Man

Spencer Horsman of Illusions Magic Bar (1025 S. Charles Street), a fourth generation Federal Hill-er who entered the world of magic at age four, is embarking on a year-long journey with Cirque du Soleil as a performer and MC.

Even though Illusions will be losing its main man, the establishment, owned by Spencer and his father, Ken Horsman, will not be dark. While Spencer is wowing spectators across 14 countries and 36 U.S cities starting in January 2011, some new and exciting acts will take the stage at Illusions. And, Spencer will make appearances and re-appearances on his home stage in between stops on his international tour. You can even catch him in a new light when Cirque Du Soleil comes to the Washington/Batimore area.

Although Spencer looks forward to the opportunity of working in front of such large and diverse crowds, some mysterious force always pulls him back to Federal Hill, where he will continue to “ooo” and “ahh” the crowd at Illusions. Luckily for us, Spencer has not disappeared into thin air and shall return.
