Mike Super 2.0H!

They say that lightning doesn’t strike the same place twice, but don’t tell that to Mike Super, who returns to the O’Donnell Center with a brand-new show!

Super’s family-friendly magical performance in January drew rave reviews from the audience, inspiring his return for the upcoming season. Prepare to be wowed all over again as Super unveils a newly created, never-before-seen show that takes his uniquely branded evening of mystery to an entirely new level. In this magical spectacular, it’s possible that someone will travel through time, the audience could solve a murder mystery, and Super will stun the audience with his ability to make impossible predictions and even read minds … all in just the first 10 minutes of the show!

Super has pioneered a new form of magic with his own inimitable, down-to-earth style and personality. The winner of NBC’s “Phenomenon” and a top finalist from “America’s Got Talent,” Super has appeared in numerous TV shows, including “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and “Penn and Teller’s Fool Us.”

The secret to Super's success is his natural ability to entertain and captivate people. He has brought the art of magic back to the people and connects personally with each member of his audience Whether through television, stage, or one-on-one, Super's personality and humor reach out and enchant the public. His appeal to both young and old has made him one of the most sought-after magicians in the world.

The Music of the Knights

The 2023-24 season will conclude with a celebration of three of Britain’s most legendary songwriters (and honorary knights) – Sir Andrew Lloyd Weber, Sir Elton John, and Sir Paul McCartney. These incredible songwriters have inspired millions around the world, and “Music of the Knights” honors their lasting musical influence with songs like “Memory,” “I Don’t Know How to Love Him,” “Don’t Cry For Me, Argentina,” “The Phantom of the Opera,” “Circle of Life,” “Can You Feel the Love Tonight,” “Your Song,” “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me,” “Yesterday,” “Hey Jude,” and more!

“‘Music of the Knights’ is the freshest theatrical concert I’ve experienced in years,” said Susan Agin, Executive and Artistic Director for the Queensborough Performing Arts Center. “Cheers erupted throughout the concert and when it was over the multi-generational audience was left spellbound. The joyful energy and excitement all around us was almost unbelievable.”
