MUM Cover Story: Douglas ‘Lefty’ Leferovich

Post 2 of 64


Douglas Leferovich has come a long way from the days when he and his brother Johnny would tag along to Parent Assembly meetings in Manhattan with their dad, John.

Doug, Johnny, and John formed a magic act — Magic by the 3Ls — and performed frequently for parties, company picnics, and other events. The experience of attending Assembly meetings and receiving feedback from more experienced magicians gave the budding conjurors an extra degree of knowledge, refinement, and depth.

It’s remarkable to see the trajectory that has led Doug from those early days to touring the world, appearing on national television, and performing concurrently in two Las Vegas shows, not to mention consulting for some of the world’s top entertainers.

Each year at its Salute to Magic show the Parent Assembly honors a Magician of the Year, someone who represents the ideals of the Assembly, is accomplished as a magician, and gives back to the community. This year the Assembly’s selection committee determined that Doug Leferovich represents the epitome of those qualities.

In this conversation, Doug speaks at length about his path in magic. It illustrates the tenacity, creativity, and hard work that have led him to a successful career in magic and inspired Parent Assembly to honor him as Magician of the Year.
