Magician Michael Turco can be found performing during his energetic stage show in the Saxe Theater at Planet Hollywood. Audiences might remember Turco from his sixth season appearance on the popular NBC television show America’s Got Talent. That talent has since arrived in Las Vegas and lucky ticket holders can catch Turco’s show–Magic and Mayhem–and experience an enjoyable afternoon of mystery and illusion.

Four talented dancers (Rachel Hall, Ashleigh Hunter, Shana Menkevich and Britne Lopez) open the show with a choreographed number which is pleasing and upbeat. Their dance routine successfully establishes the tempo of the show that is to come. Each of the dancers perform well as they provide visual interest on a relatively large stage.

Parisian magician Stefan Vanel has moved to the Harmon Theater at Planet Hollywood. His recent move might have something to do with the two different ways his name is currently being spelled on promotional materials. He performed under his given name, Stephane Vanel, whilst headlining in The Magic of Paris at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino.

Stefan began his magical career by accident. In his early days he worked as an underwear model for Armani. One day, whilst awaiting his turn on the catwalk, Vanel had been practicing flourishes with a pack of cards. When it came time for him to walk down the runway, there was no place to put his cards. Vanel quickly adlibbed a manipulative card routine which he performed as he walked down the runway. The audience response was so great that his accidental performance unexpectedly landed him a weekly television magic show–entitled Fun TV Magic–in Paris, France.
