Backstage Pass: Model Victoria Henley goes ‘Presto!’ in the Smokies


Recently voted “Best Family Magic Show” by the International Magician’s Society, Steven Best Unbelievable Magic is the most dynamic new magic show in the Smoky Mountains, featuring mind blowing illusions, remarkable sleight of hand, and unbelievable feats of mentalism,  which truly defy reality.

Recipient of the Merlin Award (which is equivalent to winning an Academy Award within the realm of magic), acclaimed magician Steven Best now joins the ranks of some of the world’s most famous magicians, including David Copperfield, Penn & Teller and Siegfried and Roy.

The dazzling gold statuette is now proudly on display in the lobby for one-of-a-kind viewing and photo opportunities within the Smoky Mountain Theater, the performance venue that the namesake magician and entrepreneur, Steven Best, opened in May 2021 to offer quality, family friendly entertainment to the legions of guests who visit the Great Smoky Mountains each year.

Best, who has performed and served in creative director and performance positions in top theaters throughout town and previously headlined several shows in the entertainment capital Las Vegas, maintains a warm and engaging rapport with his audiences in this charming, intimate theater.

Serving up a broad range of acts to excite and intrigue all ages, magic acts ranging from a thrilling twist on the “pulling a rabbit out of a hat” classic (featuring crowd favorite, “David Hopperfield” ), and a gravity defying segment featuring a table that floats through the air with ease, Steven Best Unbelievable Magic is a refreshing blend of modern and traditional feats of magic.

During a beautiful tribute to his mother, who offered ardent and unwavering support to the magician throughout his childhood, Best offered words of encouragement and inspiration to aspiring magicians and always takes time to meet with his fans, take photos on the red carpet step and repeat, and sign magic kits and booklets from his gift/magic shop.
