Called an “extremist’’ magician, Curtis Adams brings his dangerous stunts, illusions and pyrotechnics to the Mother Lode Theatre, 316 W. Park St., at 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 25.

The show is part of the theater’s variety series. Tickets are $56 main; $48 mezzanine; $38 loge; and $22 balcony. Call the Mother Lode at 723-3602.

Adams, 27, injects a style of his own into this production. He does things that no one else has done on stage, including “Wheelies and Endos” on his Ducati Motorcycle. Most Hollywood actors don’t

perform their own stunts, but Curtis performs all his own stunts, every night.

“There is no room for error. A split second too early or too late and you’re history … Just like Columbus,” said Adams.

Adams has trained with one of the best extreme stunt riders in the business, Gino Velasquez.

“I can’t believe how quick this guy learns. This is my life and it’s taken me years to learn some of these stunts and Curtis learned it in no time,” says Velasquez. “It’s like he has no fear…There’s no telling him he can’t do something … when he wants it he attacks it at full speed. This is one driven young professional.”

The goal of this young performer/entrepreneur is to have the hottest trend-setting show that’s both extreme and dangerous. “We are breaking all the rules,” says Adams. “The idea is to create a show so hip that it appeals to both adults and young adults. To do this we have to take magic a quantum leap forward by changing the way we present our magic.”

“We are changing the way a magician walks, talks and moves,” Adams said.
