“Life and Other Deceptions” at Two Roads


Dazzling, hilarious, fast-paced and introspective, Life and Other Deceptions is a new theater and magic show that is now playing in Studio City. Actor and magician, Steve Valentine is currently presenting his solo show at Two Roads Theatre until early January.

Valentine’s lightning-fast prestidigitation defies description, proving that age-old saying ‘the hand is quicker than the eye.’ Years of honing his sleight-of-hand skills are on display in this exciting and compelling two-act show that deftly combines comedy with illusions and card tricks as well as injecting some personal storytelling.

Delighting and surprising us with numerous tricks and humorous tales, Valentine is a consummate performer who knows how to hold the rapt attention of the audience in the palms of his dextrous hands.
