The Magic of Paris is a unique show featuring slight of hand magician Stephane Vanel from Paris, France. On June 1, 2011 Stephane opened his show in the Anthony Cools Showroom and he was warmly greeted by the audience. The Magic of Paris is produced by Thierry Cohen who has put together a great cast to entertain all age groups. The show runs Tuesday through Sunday at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. and is dark on Mondays.

The show starts with two beautiful Parisian dancers who set the mood of being in Paris with their sexy song and dance routine. I must say that the Las Vegas dancers have fabulous bodies and a pleasure and a delight to watch. Stephane performed a tango with Audrey Remy-Listier that was sexy and hot.

Stephane Vanel charms and mesmerizes the audience with his handsome looks and his graceful body movements on stage. He reminded me of the actor Gilles Marini, the French Actor, who had a role in Sex and The City film and was Cheryl Burke’s partner in Dancing with the stars. Gilles is so handsome and he is a product of a Greek mother and an Italian Father, gee that is the mixture of my sons.

Excellent is how you would describe his performance as you sit in wonderment trying to see how Stephane manipulated the cards and had the girls appear and disappear with ease.

Anthony Rais

Anthony Rais, a master puppeteer, was part of The Magic of Paris Show featuring his puppet Totolino. Totolino is a boy clown who will tug your heart strings as he is manipulated by 23 strings and moves gracefully and artfully with the music from Paliachi. Normally a puppet has nine strings to be manipulated so you can imagine what Anthony Rais is doing with his 23 strings. It is absolutely brilliant and breathtaking.

Totolino floats gracefully into the air by a balloon and his movements are so life like.

Anthony brought on another one of his many puppets who was dressed in a beautiful white dress that had been made from his mothers wedding gown.

It was magical to see how the puppets captured the attention of the audience. Anthony Rais brings his magic to shows all over the world and the world is a better place by his memorable performances with his puppets.

I am looking forward to seeing Anthony Rais in Siegfried “The Show”. His impersonation is flawless with his accent, movements and spectacular costumes. The audience reviews say he is spectacular and think he is the real Siegfried.
We all enjoyed Anthony greeting everyone after the show.

The entire cast spent time with the fans outside the showroom.

We got to hang around with everyone at the after party in the Sugar Factory at the Paris Hotel. The food and especially the candy were great.
