Anthony the GREAT

Anthony the GREAT is the stage persona of Richmond, Indiana magician Tony Truitt.  This character was first created at Richmond Civic Theater in October of 2009 at the theater’s 100th anniversary show that Truitt performed in.  Directed by David Cobine and Michele Avery the show featured performances reminiscent of acts that actually appeared at the Murray Theater throughout its history.  Truitt said “the performance and character were so well-received and so many people made so many nice comments about it that I knew I just had to look into doing more with Anthony the GREAT”  The show concept has been expanded to create a stand-alone forty-five minute show that while being entirely family-friendly, does appeal primarily to the sense of humor of adults while creating a fun, energetic show that recalls this golden era of magical performance.  Anthony the GREAT is not to be missed.
