Thank You for Coming to The Closet of Mystery!

Like many other creative professionals when the pandemic hit I found myself out of work.

Fortunately for the family my wife continued working from home and I found myself as acting head-master to our two elementary school-aged boys. Between handing out Work Sheets, running Spelling Bees and learning New New Math, I caught up on all my streaming media, started making bread and worked out the logistics for weekly grocery runs. 

I really wanted to work on a show but most of my space and time was accounted for.

They say when the student is ready the master appears, I guess it's true because I happened upon, during my daily scouring of social media, a magician. But this magician wasn't anyone I had ever heard of-- probably because he was a children's magician but he was unlike any children's magician I had ever seen. He combined magic, maker-culture, STEM content in a high-energy, intense, fun-filled show. He had a message for his audience:

 

"You've got to do what you love. You've got to work with what you've got. You've got to have fun."

-Mysterious Kids' Magician

And it hit me like a lightning bolt. I wanted to do a show, all I had was my imagination and a tiny space in our storage room that I was using as my office. So I downloaded the Zoom app, hired a couple of tech mentors and I started inviting friends over for a virtual show.

And that's how the Closet of Mystery was born.

Oh, and that mysterious magician/ who inspired me so much was this guy: https://www.mariothemagician.com
