Legendary magician David Copperfield paid a surprise visit to Branson, MO last Friday, May 12, 2006, and attended the hit show, Siegfried & Roy present Darren Romeo, the Voice of Magic. Copperfield, a friend and colleague of Darren Romeo (better known to his fans as simply “Romeo”) enthusiastically offered a standing ovation. Copperfield was in Springfield, MO this weekend for the performance of his live show, David Copperfield’s An Intimate Evening of Grand Illusion, to a sold-out theater.

Romeo, sole protégé of another set of legendary illusionists, Siegfried & Roy, was thrilled to have such an esteemed guest among his audience. This is Copperfield’s second viewing of Romeo’s show and was ever more supportive of the work that Romeo is producing in the world of magic.

“I was truly honored to have Mr. David Copperfield in the audience today,” said Romeo after the show. “It is not often that one gets such a pat on the back from someone who has changed the face of magic during our lifetime. In my life, David Copperfield and Siegfried & Roy are the biggest names in magic and to have their support is unbelievable.”

Romeo is no stranger to endorsements from celebrated individuals. In February of 2006, Romeo, being a big fan of cars and racing, entered into a partnership with NASCAR and Jeff Gordon whereby the famous #24 car appears nightly in front of a live audience on Siegfried & Roy Present Darren Romeo, the Voice of Magic at the Welk Resort Theater. This partnership is a first between NASCAR and an illusionist of any sort on a nightly live show.

Romeo will also be appearing in “Branson Landing” on June 16, 2006, where he will be the official spokesperson for the launch of this $450 million mega-complex complete with residences, retail shops, dining, recreation, entertainment and relaxation that come together by the waterside.

ABOUT DARREN ROMEO

Named after music legend Bobby Darin, Darren Romeo, better known to his fans as “Romeo”, grew up to the songs of his namesake and other music legends. However, his first love was magic. It wasn't until high school that Romeo discovered his passion for singing, through leading roles in musicals including Bye Bye Birdie and Pippin.

It was his musical theatre dramatics that eventually led to his unique approach to the performance of magic. Acknowledging that there’s something magical about music, Romeo set out to meld the two disciplines. Though he explored all types of music, Romeo was tremendously influenced by the work of Andrew Lloyd Webber whose compositions are featured in several pieces in Romeo’s show.

Romeo was named Magician of the Year 2004 by the Academy of Magical Arts Awards, Magic Castle, Hollywood, California and Best Show 2004 by the BransonCritic Awards. In 2004 Romeo was also honored for his exceptional contributions to magic and performance by The Society of American Magicians (S.A.M.). With a growing fan base, accolades as Best Show 2005 by the BransonCritic Awards and more -- fate, destiny and the future appear quite bright for this talented entertainer. Romeo can be seen these days on national media outlets such as Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood, Extra, The Insider and Details Magazine.
