GIOVANNI 'JOHN' ZATARA
The grandfather of Zatara and the great-grandfather of Zatanna.
Out In The Tropics (July)
Artists from around the world take the stage at Out in the Tropics, South Florida’s first LGBT contemporary performing arts festival. Expect a combination of comedy, circus arts, Cuban theater and much more.
Giovanni "John" Zatara was a stage magician with the ability to manipulate true magic, who used his powers to fight crime and evil. Zatara’s distinctive magical abilities involved speaking his incantations backwards to focus their power.
On his fifteenth birthday, Zatara’s grandfather, the famous stage magician Luigi Zatara, gave him a box of the tricks from his magic act. The boy showed an aptitude for stage magic and began to pursue the craft professionally at only nineteen. His early attempts at performing professionally were unsuccessful until he discovered the notebooks of his reputed ancestor, Leonardo da Vinci. While reading the notebooks, which Leonardo wrote in backwards spelling as a security precaution, Zatara learned that he had the gift of true magic. With this new knowledge, Zatara developed a successful stage show. During his premiere performance, a fire broke out on stage, forcing Zatara to use true magic to put it out. While the audience mistook the incident as part of the act, Zatara realized the true value of his power, and he resolved to use it help others.
