The Magicians

 

So I'm a sucker for dumb fantasy shows, and if you are too then this will be right up your alley. This TV show on Syfy is so good. Like. So good. It's just a modern, real, gritty story about what the world would be like if magic was real. The stories and plots are intricate and the pacing is wonderful. I have been hooked so I've just been watching every week when I can. There are some intense moments throughout the series, so if you don't do well with gore or violence, this show might not be for you.

I had the pleasure of seeing this new musical at the Lynn Redgrave Theater a few months ago. Knowing about Max Vernon's work, it was important to me that I saw it while in the city. This production is outstanding. The second the audience enters the theatre they are transported to the UpStairs Lounge, a gay club in New Orleans operating in the early 70s. This story is important because it brings to light important issues that the LGBTQ+ community still experiences today using this not talked about story from Queer history. I would recommend this show to anyone, and hope to see it again if I get the chance.
