INDIANAPOLIS — Ever the showman, Taylor Martin is working on a bigger, better setup for the fourth annual Indianapolis Magic Festival.

“We got two theaters, and a television setup with overhead projection system for close-up magic,” Martin said Wednesday. “It will be like the Magic Castle.”

Quite a feat, comparing Indy venues to the legendary Hollywood theater where magic’s best perform. But that’s the caliber of talent he has brought to Indy for the festival, presented by IndyFringe today through Sunday.

Close-up magic, like card tricks, that can be performed within inches of audience members, will be featured in the IndyFringe Theater, 719 E. St. Clair (just east of the St. Clair/Mass Ave./College intersection), with each show lasting about 30 minutes, Martin said.

Longer stage acts (45 to 55 minutes) will be at the Cook Theater in the Indiana Landmarks Center, 1201 N. Central.

“Magic has never been presented in Indianapolis like this before,” Martin said. “We have just an amazing array of people.”
