This website is dedicated to the amazing story of
Mark Wilson's Hall of Magic at the '64/'65 New York World's Fair:
In 1960, Mark Wilson became the first magician to have his own network TV Series. It ran for a total of 5 years, 2 on CBS and 3 on ABC. By 1963, Mark Wilson was clearly the most famous magician in the USA. He had been seen by more people than watched Houdini in his entire career. So it was no surprise when Mark was approached in 1963 to create a magical production for the General Cigar Pavilion at the 1964/65 New York World's Fair.
What followed is a truly amazing story. Wilson and his TV show creative team set out to make one of the most advanced magic shows ever designed. Discover, on this site, what happened, and how the end result became one of the top 10 highest rated productions at the Fair, along side all those big Disney venues.
Mark's Hall of Magic blazed a trail for the modern magic you see today, influencing the likes of David Copperfield, and many other success stories that were inspired by this show.
