Actor, director and one of the most acclaimed magicians in the world, Bradley Fields began professionally at the age of fourteen. Working as apprentice to actor-magician, Jack Adams, Bradley began performing in schools, nightclubs, theaters, and on television. After taking a BA in Philosophy with a minor in Theater (SUNY, Purchase), he went to Paris where he studied mime with the great master Etienne Decroux while introducing his highly unorthodox magic act into Parisian cabarets. Returning to New York, Bradley began touring college shows across the US, and throughout the late 70’s, he was a featured act at Reno Sweeney’s, Tramps, and other NY cabarets. After studying acting and directing for two years at the Stella Adler Conservatory, he created the role of the Barker for the hit Broadway musical, Barnum!, and designed magic for the show. With the birth of his children, Fields took some time off to teach in the New York City Public Schools. It was there that he conceived the idea of MatheMagic!®, a show which uses magic to teach math. It has since been seen in over one thousand schools, theaters, and performing arts centers becoming one of the most highly praised and best selling educational shows in the US. In addition to giving two hundred performances of MatheMagic!® each school year, Bradley Fields has appeared at the National Theater, the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC and became the first American magician to be presented in Beijing, China.
