Frewin Joins Magical Show Masters of Illusion

It's no illusion that you’re seeing double with Greg Frewin this summer.

In addition to a regular nightly show at his Ellen Ave. theatre, the Niagara Falls magician can also be seen on the CW Network's revival of Masters of Illusion. He was on the first episode of season 2 July 10, and appears in five upcoming segments, starting with Episode 3 Friday night.

Frewin filmed the episodes last February. Among the illusions he performs are the 'Squishier' illusion and the 'Glass Sawing Origami' illusion. In the season premiere he performed the 'Sphere,' in which one of his dancers is placed in a container which is pierced with flame lit stakes. When the container opens, two dancers and a wolf emerge.

Ask Niagara Falls magician Greg Frewin how many awards he has won, and he might respond “Which year?”

One of the most decorated illusionists in the industry has little left to prove at this point. His Ellen Avenue theatre is full of plaques, trophies and accolades. The only one left, it seemed, was Magician of the Year at the prestigious World Magic Awards.

After last week, he can cross that one off the list, too.

"This was a big, big show - it really was a good feeling,” says Frewin, two days after Wednesday's award show that was held in Los Angeles. "More so for the team. They're a big part of the show here, the dancers, the backstage people. "This award wasn't just for me."

Hosted by Hollywood stars Robert Wagner and Jill St. John, the gala show will be broadcast on MyNetworkTV (WNYO-TV in Buffalo) Nov. 19. For the top award, Frewin beat out magic heavyweights like Ed Alonzo (currently on tour with Britney Spears), Las Vegas vet Lance Burton and renowned escape artist Rick Maisel.
