Steve Cohen’s intimate and upscale, and often unbelievable, magic show takes place in an elegant suite in the luxurious Waldorf Astoria Towers. Even the most ardent nonbelievers will walk away feeling dazzled by the Millionaires’ Magician.
Prepare yourself for a classy evening: Audience members are asked to dress to impress in cocktail attire, and Steve Cohen always dons his own tuxedo. To start the night off right, grab a drink in the Old World glamour of the Waldorf Astoria bar. The dirty martini goes down particularly well amidst the rich mahogany.
The show takes place in a room fit for the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, who was once treated to a version of the very same magic performance you’re about to experience. A chandelier sparkles overhead, a plush Turkish rug lies underfoot, and simple chairs with ornate gold details sit in rows. The audience numbers are purposely kept low, and there’s plenty of interaction between Cohen and his guests. It feels more like you’re in the company of a rich and talented friend than at a big-time Broadway show.
The mystery of the illusion would be ruined with too much detail, but suffice it to say that your mind will be blown—no matter how skeptical you are. Cohen performs all sorts of unbelievable acts, crazy card tricks, and mind reading. It’s impossible to leave without feeling like you’ve seen a true magician at work. For the same price as a show on Broadway, you have an evening that truly can’t be replicated anywhere else in the world.
Steve Cohen isn’t the only ticket in town. For another exciting alternative to the standard Broadway show, check out the Blue Man Group. As a unique combination of theater, art, vaudeville, and old-fashioned comedy, there’s no set plotline, but this new guard of performance art will engage all of your senses.
