Magical mystery tour (ticket giveaway for Ottawa’s NAC)

Magic shows make me think of a Ken-doll look-a-like man, a Barbie-esque assistant, and tacky costumes with too much skin. And velvet — lots and lots of velvet. But I’ve never actually seen a live magic show though, have you? 

Well here’s your chance: Joseph Gabriel will be performing a magic act in concert with the National Arts Centre orchestra. The show is called “Mysterioso: Music and Magic.” I’ll admit it does sound a bit cheesy and I’ve never been smitten by watching magic shows on television. But live? That might be pretty cool. Especially since Gabriel has been feted by everyone from Johnny Carson to Rosie O’Donnel.

Here’s a clip from one of his shows:

So, hey, I’m up for it! If you are too, I’ve got two tickets for the Thursday, March 18th show.
To enter, simply:
Make sure you’re available to attend & leave a comment (no need to use a real name if you’d rather not). I’ll draw a name from the comments using a computer randomizer on Monday, March 15th at noon.
