It’s rare for someone to land their dream gig right off the bat, and such is the case for Aaron Rabkin. His Chicago venue Trickery is the culmination of years of practice, first as a kid in various magic camps and competitions, then later in one-man shows, street performances, and corporate magic. Nothing felt right, though, until he finally decided to make a go of it with his own intimate theater in the heart of downtown Chicago – and the rest, as they say, is history. Learn about his journey through magic in part four of our five-part interview.
