Starring award-winning magician Ivan Amodei, Intimate Illusions dazzles with masterful sleight of hand and mind-boggling feats peppered by witty banter. Within a chandelier-lit theater, enhanced by an afterparty vibe, the show’s illusions unfold with audience participation and live musical accompaniment. In 90 minutes, Amodei might delve into the mystery of Mona Lisa’s smile with high-resolution magnifications that reveal a code behind the famous sitter’s eyes; explore the puzzles of the universe through the lens of Einstein’s work; demonstrate savant-like mental powers inspired by Rain Man; or access his sixth sense to commune with unseen forces. A lovely concert cellist accompanies the performance, intensifying the atmosphere with classical tunes from Mozart and Bach as well as popular music from films.
