Ben Zabin has a remarkable ease for such a young magician. He’s been impressing audiences around the world and on television for many years, and most recently, on a local news show in Vermont. Even though he starts it out making it seem like he’s explaining how the trick is done, Zabin has something much sneakier up his sleeve. Vermont locals can see him continue to amaze on Saturday, March 17, at the Main Street Landing Performing Arts Center in Burlington. He has several other tour dates booked around the Northeast next month.
Zabin made a leap to fame in a somewhat surprising fashion: by goofing up his act live on Penn & Teller: Fool Us. But the plucky teen has certainly made lemonade out of that lemon, with an ongoing performance career and even a book to his credit.
