Intent on Enchantment: Magician Misty Lee
Not for nothing was New Mexico nicknamed the Land of Enchantment. Magic often seems to inhabit the landscape, and during the coming week it will completely overtake the Jean Cocteau Theater, thanks to screenings of magic-related films and three live performances by Misty Lee, a leading practitioner of theatrical magic. As a student, she trained her sights on dentistry, but the allure of magic soon sunk its teeth into her. She put down roots in Los Angeles, where she lives with her husband, Paul Dini, an animation producer and comic book author, and got busy with a career that has included voice-over acting, improvisational comedy, and, especially, theatrical magic.
