Magician and mind reader Kayla Drescher was the latest guest on my Talking Travel interview series on Global Traveler. Kayla was kind enough to give me her time during the blizzard and freeze over last weekend.
As I told her to end the interview, I first saw her on Penn & Teller Fool Us in 2017. I loved her act. It was one trick, involving two sheets of paper, two scissors and Teller. There was no talking, but a beautiful story was told. It was theatrical magic at its best.
When I saw she started a month long run at Rhapsody Theater on Chicago's north side, I thought it was the perfect time to interview her on GT and also the Chicago Patch (probably more important for the specific performance run). Kayla was as delightful as the act I saw on television.
She discussed her start, the difference between magic and mind-reading, the challenges video technology brings and more. On the travel end (to keep my GT big cheese happy), she talked about adjusting to audiences in different cities, where she loved performing, cities on her bucket list and more. Of course, she also talked about performing in her hometown.
It was a fun interview which came together quickly. I appreciate Kayla's time and consideration.
