Last year around this time, she was blindfolded and driving a classic car down Main Street. On Saturday, Gypsy Allure, a magician and member of popular Sarasota performance troupe Black Diamond Burlesque, brings her fun, sexy repertoire of illusions, magic, comedy and audience participation to the Sarasota Classic Car Museum. She will be joined by fellow Black Diamond performers Miss Petite Coquette and Flirt Astaire. The show is being billed as "a magical event for the entire family."
"Born in Las Vegas, Gypsy is the daughter of International Magician Vince Carmen and The First Lady of the Unicycle Yvonne Carmen," reads her publicity release. "Gypsy started assisting her dad at the age of four with smaller tricks and then she moved up to larger illusions."
5 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Sarasota Classic Car Museum, 5500 N Tamiami Trail, Sarasota; $15 (plus one drink minimum); 355-6228; sarasotacarmuseum.org.
