About Monday Night Magic
Monday Night Magic has established a first-class atmosphere to show and experience magic that avoids giant sets, barely dressed assistants, wild animals, and Las Vegas frills. Rather, the show features talented entertainers performing skillful magic with distinctive personalities. Although families are welcome, Monday Night Magic is not a children’s show, it’s a sophisticated adult audience entertainment evening. The theater is packed with a mix of newcomers and loyal customers, residents in New York City and foreign visitors every week, both looking–and finding! – A unique, original performance.
Every show features four performers on stage with varying performing styles and magic types. During the extended intermission, at least two magicians demonstrate intimate close-up magic at different locations in the theater. The roster is a genuine Who’s Who of Magic, as seen by biographies found on the Monday Night Magic website. Monday Night Magic also offers young artists rare chances to get a chance to be noticed by the public.
