Sound
impossibleDavid

Copperfield

built
a  reputation
on  making
the
impossible
look
easy.
He  singlehandedly

redefined
his
art,
and
remains
the
most
emulated
illusionist

in  the
history
of  magic.
Early
Life
and
Career
An  only
child,
David
was
born
on  September
16,
1956
as  David
Kotkin
in  Metuchen,
New
Jersey.
His
father,
Hy,
owned
Korby's
Men's
shop.
His
mother,
Rebecca,
worked
in  the
insurance
business.
A  shy
kid
who
overcame
his
insecurity
with
the
help
of  magic,
David
was
already
an  accomplished

conjurer
by  the
age
of  12,
when
he  was
the
invited
to  join
the
Society
of  American
Magicians—its

youngest
member
ever.
At  16,
David
was
an  adjunct
professor
at  New
York
University,

where
he  taught
a  course
called
"the
Art
of  Magic."
At  18  David
was
cast
as  the
lead
in  "The
Magic
Man,"
a  new
musical
comedy
created
by  the
producers
of  "Grease."
The
show
opened
in  Chicago
to  rave
reviews.
It  went
on  to  become
the
longest
running
musical
in  Chicago's
history,
and
gave
David
the
invaluable
experience
of  performing
daily
in  front
of  a  live
audience,
allowing
him
to  develop
the
spontaneity

and
love
of  live
performance

that
has
him
performing
up  to  four
shows
a  day,
and
doing
over
500
performances

every
year.
    Copperfield

on  Television
When
The
Magic
Man
closed
David
returned
to  New
York.
He  continued
to  develop
his
singular
approach
to  magic,
which
was
strongly
influenced
by  his
love
of  classic
MGM
musicals,
the
dramatic
storytelling

exemplified

by  Orson
Welles
and
Walt
Disney
(two
of  David's
heroes)
and
the
lyrical,
muscular
romanticism

of  a  Sinatra
ballad.
As  host
of  "The
Magic
of  ABC,
Starring
David
Copperfield",

he  achieved
top
ratings
and
shared
his
unique
style
magic
with
millions
of  viewers.
CBS
immediately

put
David
under
contract
for
a  series
of  yearly
TV  specials,
which
became
known
as  "The
Magic
of  David
Copperfield".

In  each
special
he  presented
new
illusions
on  a  scale
never
before
imagined
or  attempted—and

always
in  front
of  a  live
audience,
without
the
use
of  camera
tricks.
In  his
fourth
TV  special,
he  "Vanished
a  Jet
Airplane."
In  his
fifth
special
he  presented
"The
Illusion
of  the
Century
—  the
Disappearance

of  the
Statue
of  Liberty"
in  front
of  a  live
audience
on  Liberty
Island,
and
to  millions
of  astonished
television
viewers.
For
the
next
two
decades
David
continued
to  break
new
ground
with
his
annual
top-rated,
Emmy
Award
winning
television
specials,
on  which
he  continued
to  outdo
himself
by  "Walking
Through
the
Great
Wall
of  China,"
escaping
from
chains
and
shackles
just
before
he  was
plunged
over
Niagara
Falls,
surviving
being
locked
in  a  safe
inside
an  imploding
building,
making
a  daring
"Escape
from
Alcatraz"
prison,
levitating
and
"Vanishing
a  45  ton
Orient
Express
Train
Car"
while
surrounded
by  a  ring
of  spectators,

escaping
while
hanging
upside
down
from
burning
ropes
in  a  straight
jacket
10  stories
above
flaming
steel
spikes,
testing
his
endurance
by  surviving
the
deadly
heat
standing
in  the
center
of  a  2000
degree
"Tornado
of  Fire",
and
flying
through
the
air
in  "Flying."
DAVID
COPPERFIELD

Biography
David
Copperfield

has
been
hailed
by  audiences
and
critics
alike
as  the
greatest
magician
in  the
world.
Broadway
In  1996
David
realized
a  life
long
dream
of  performing
on  Broadway.
Collaborating

with
Francis
Ford
Coppola,
David
created
"Dreams
and
Nightmares",

which
still
holds
the
Broadway
record
for
most
tickets
sold
in  a  week—more
than
Cats,
The
Lion
King,
and
The
Producers.
    The
International

Museum
and
Library
of  the
Conjuring
Arts
A  historian
of  his
art,
Copperfield

founded
The
International

Museum
and
Library
of  the
Conjuring
Arts,
which
houses
the
world's
largest
collection
of  historically

significant

magic
memorabilia,

posters,
books,
props
and
artifacts.
The
museum
comprises
of  approximately

80,000
items
of  magic
history,
including
Houdini's
Water
Torture
Cell
and
his
Metamorphosis

Trunk,
Orson
Welles'
Buzz
Saw
Illusion
and
automata
created
by  Robert-Houdin,

who
is  considered
the
father
of  modern
magic.
The
museum
also
includes
the
only
known
recording
of  Houdini's
voice—preserved

on  the
original
Edison
wax
cylinders.
    Literature,

Press
and
Popular
Culture
On  the
literary
front,
Copperfield

joined
forces
with
Dean
Koontz,
Joyce
Carol
Oates,
Ray
Bradbury
and
others
for
"David
Copperfield's

Tales
of  the
Impossible,"

an  anthology
of  original
fiction
set
in  the
world
of  magic
and
illusion.
This
collections

was
so  well
received
that
a  second
volume
was
published,
"David
Copperfield's

Beyond
Imagination."David

has
been
featured
on  the
cover
of  Vanity
Fair,
Esquire,
Forbes,
and
Architectural

Digest.
The
word
"Copperfield"

has
become
a  part
of  popular
culture,
in  a  manner
quite
apart
from
anything
envisioned
by  Dickens.
In  today's
literature
and
media,
to  "do
a  David
Copperfield"

or  to  "be
the
David
Copperfield

of"
something
has
come
to  mean
doing
something
magical
or  achieving
the
impossible.

    Musha
Cay
and
the
Islands
of  Copperfield

Bay
Recently,
Copperfield

found
a  unique
platform
on  which
to  create
his
newest
wonders
–  "Musha
Cay
and
The
Islands
of  Copperfield

Bay".
Recognized
by  many
as  the
most
beautiful
and
spectacular

destination

in  the
world,
Musha
Cay
is  the
ultimate
private
island
paradise.
Located
in  the
Exumas,
Bahamas,
these
11  private
islands
have
over
700
acres
of  lush
natural
beauty,
40  sugar
sand
beaches
and
a  2  mile
long
sandbar
–  truly
paradise
on  earth.
David
has
been
developing
unique
magical
adventures
for
island
guests
including:
Dave's
Drive-
in,
where
a  giant
silver
screen
"appears"
on  the
beach,
a  custom
designed
magical
Treasure
Hunt
adventure,
and
the
Secret
Village
-  a  hidden
sanctuary
of  enchanted
monkeys
accessed
only
by  entering
beneath
a  giant
rising
statue
and
journeying
through
an  ancient,
underground

passage.
    Project
Magic
David's
proudest
achievement,

however,
is  Project
Magic,
a  program
that
uses
magic
as  therapy
in  a  thousand
hospitals
in  30  countries
worldwide.
This
medically-certified

program
motivates
patients
to  regain
their
dexterity,
coordination

and
cognitive
skills
by  learning
simple
magic
and
sleight
of  hand.
    The
Magic
"It
takes
at  least
2  years
to  develop
illusions
and
some
of  them
take
even
longer,"
says
David.
"I  love
to  challenge
my  team
and
myself
by  pushing
the
envelope
and
working
on  new
methods
and
ideas.
I  don't
always
take
the
easiest
route.
Sometimes,
the
ultimate
solution
requires
months
of  brainstorming,

miniatures
and
mock-ups,
and
testing
just
to  make
an  idea
a  reality."
Oprah
Winfrey
calls
David
Copperfield,

"The
greatest
illusionist

of  our
time".
He  has
forever
changed
the
future
of  his
art
and
shown
that
there
are
no  limits-
that
magic
is  as  vast
as  the
imagination.
