TacoTown Theatre Company and The Overtime Theater present the world premiere production of Magick: An Evening with Aleister Crowley, written and performed by solo theatre artist Jade Esteban Estrada. Magick is a 60-minute musical comedy that circles the life and work of Aleister Crowley, considered by many to be one of the most important occult figures of the 20th century.

The book, music, and lyrics are by Estrada, a man who’s spent most of his performance career portraying some of the most famous people in the history of Western civilization through his widely-traveled solo musicals.

Enter the capricious mind of Aleister Crowley as he takes his late-night guests on a dark, irreverent journey of his notorious life as the leader of 20th century occultism and ceremonial magick. Dubbed by the press as “The Wickedest Man in the World,” Crowley, who referred to himself as “The Great Beast 666,” founded his own religious order and his works have been credited with ushering in the New Age movement. An icon of popular culture, he was included as one of the figures on the cover art of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and was the subject of Ozzy Osbourne’s song entitled “Mr. Crowley.” Traveling the world in search of spiritual enlightenment, he spent his days writing numerous books and designed his own Tarot Cards that are still in use today. In his rage against Christianity, Crowley’s essential philosophy, “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. Love is the law, love under will,” is a belief that frames his prophesy that has seemingly come to pass, though many believe it has yet to be completely fulfilled.
