Peter Samelson, master magician and off-Broadway star, literally wrote the book on Theatrical Magic. Co-founder of New York City’s longest running off-Broadway magic show Monday Night Magic and frequent performer at Speakeasy Magick, one of NY’s hottest new shows at the McKittrick Hotel, Peter has been hailed as New York’s most distinguished illusionist, entertainer, and philosopher.
Sleight-ly Mental Magic, Peter’s latest 75-minute, one-man tour de force, blends a lifetime of sleight-of-hand and sorcery; mentalism and mayhem; laughter and lunacy into one spectacular interactive performance that will leave you wanting more. The audience becomes part of the show with several opportunities to interact with Peter as he introduces Pittsburgh to his innovative comedic style. Peter’s mastery of decades-old magic traditions brings a new dimension to this intimate parlor magic show. The true mystery revealed in Sleight-ly Mental Magic is this: Peter insists that he doesn’t actually do any magic at all: he only helps people see the magic that already exists in their minds. Be sure to join us for a fantastic evening that is sure to spark your sense of wonder.
