    This is an original Virgil Magic stone lithograph from my private collection of Magic posters. Printed by Rangam Bros., this lithograph measures approximately 30" x 39" and is in very good condition. ca. 1955

    Virgil Harris Mulkey (Virgil) toured the United States from coast to coast many times during the 1930's and 40's, appearing in hundreds of theaters, colleges, civic and school auditoriums annually.

    While performing one of his shows, Virgil accidentally injured a young girl named Julie Capriotti who came up to help him on stage. Virgil felt so badly about the accident that he started visiting her and through this incident they fell in love and married in 1931. That year, Virgil and Julie hit the road with a 10-ton full evening show of magic and illusions.

    In 1952, Virgil carried his 33-ton show consisting of 20 illusions, 120 costumes, and 19 full sets of scenery to New Zealand as the start a world tour which lasted five years; touring Australia, Tasmania, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Pakistan, India, England and Ireland until 1957.

    Returning to America, Virgil and Julie continued touring the U.S. and Canada annually through 1978. The couple retired to the home they had built in 1965 overlooking Boston Harbor in Olympia, Washington.
