The televised talent show is having quite a moment in the sun, but that means magicians have yet another avenue for showcasing their skills. This week kicks off a new season of Showtime at the Apollo, the program that kickstarted the whole genre. The premiere episode is on Thursday, March 1, at 9 pm Eastern on FOX, and Steve Harvey will host.
The reboot is going to have at least a little bit of magic. Bedros Spidey Akkelian, a mentalist and hypnotist who performs under the stage name Spidey, shared to Facebook that the Apollo will be one of his televised performances this year. We’ll be staying tuned to see if any other prestidigitators manage to wow the crowds at the famed theater.
