By popular request, magician David Hirata will continue entertaining the Friday Happy Hour crowd at The Marsh Berkeley through October, with live music by wonderful ragtime pianist Larisa Migachyov. Hirata, one of The Marsh’s favorite entertainers, will baffle the audience with spellbinding sleight-of-hand in the intimate setting of the bar and cabaret. Imagine David and Larisa weaving music, movement, and storytelling together, add the theatrical surrealism of stage magic, and this is a not-to-miss, free, TGIF entertainment!
A full bar offers festive happy-hour discounts including $5 cocktails and handpicked wine and beer. There is also great bar food—Portobello Panini’s, Guacamole Salsa and fresh-baked cookies. Everyone is welcome; including those getting an early start for our 8 pm performances.
David Hirata has performed award-winning magic for over twenty years. He’s been called “a master of deceit” (Henry Tenenbaum, KRON TV), performing “classic magic with classy style” (Gerry Griffin, California Magic Dinner Theater). Classically trained Larisa Migachyov switched to ragtime after immigrating to the United States. She performs around the country and has composed 36 rags—more than any other woman in the ragtime world. In her other life, Larisa is a patent attorney in private practice.
