CLEVELAND, Ohio – Tucked within the historic walls of The Metropolitan at The 9, lies a hidden treasure of Cleveland's entertainment scene – the Alex Theater. Here, in this lesser-known gem, The Alans, a charismatic husband and wife duo, have been captivating audiences with their unique blend of magic and mentalism. Their monthly show, "In Cahoots…an Evening of Magic and Mentalism," though a staple at The 9 for the past five years, remains a delightful surprise to many.
Jason Alan, a lifelong magician, and Stacy Alan, with her rich background in clinical counseling, create an extraordinary synergy on stage. Stacy's transition from a full-time therapist in Summit County to a mentalist is a journey of passion and serendipity. Her initial fascination watching Jason perform evolved into a full-fledged career in magic and mentalism over the last decade. Together, they have crafted performances that are not just shows, but journeys into the mystical and the mind.
Their talent and chemistry haven't gone unnoticed. The Alans have graced the stage of the CW's "Penn & Teller: Fool Us," showcasing their skills to a national audience. Yet, back home at the Alex Theater, they continue to be one of Cleveland's best-kept secrets.
This hidden world of wonder was recently illuminated by Gremi, the host of Cleveland 13's 'Cleve-It To Us.'
