In a show biz career dominated by men, Jen Kramer broke through an invisible gender barrier with the mid-May launch of her magic show at Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino.
“I do a few card tricks in the show,” she said. “And I talk about how important card magic is to me and how it has a special place in my heart because of that book.”
When asked whether she felt she was breaking ground – there hasn’t been a woman magician headlining in Vegas since the 1990s – Kramer was modest in her reply.
“I definitely do my best to do a show that people enjoy and find fun,” she said. “Some of that involves being a woman in magic. I’ll incorporate objects like dresses and lipstick into the performance because it’s part of who I am.”
Tickets for Kramer’s show cost roughly $21 to $33.
“I am definitely pleased,” he said. “It’s good for magic and it hopefully will inspire little girls who want to be like her.”
“There are not that many lady magicians that a girl can aspire to follow and emulate,” said Goldrake, who has been performing since he was 8 years old. “That makes it very difficult for a girl to find her way.”
