For one night only, on Friday, September 17th, world-renowned magician Steve Cohen will bring his critically acclaimed Chamber Magic show from a private suite in New York’s legendary Waldorf-Astoria in New York to the elegant St. James Room in Boston’s own historic Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel. Limited to 75 guests, the 90-minute Chamber Magic performance will offer audiences a unique night on the town with a sophisticated twist: guests dress in cocktail attire and Cohen himself sports a dapper tuxedo as he recreates close-up parlor entertainment that characterized high society during the early 20th century. Woody Allen called Chamber Magic “a religious experience” and William Goldman, in Variety, called Cohen “as brilliant a magician as you will ever see.” A celebrity favorite, Cohen has delighted more than 250,000 guests over the past 10 years in the Waldorf and in luxury homes and venues throughout the world, with sleight of hand, mind reading, telekinesis, and baffling physical tricks and illusions.
Called the “Millionaires’ Magician” by Forbes magazine, he was the subject of a recent feature in The New York Times and appeared on “Late Show with David Letterman” in May and June. His distinguished clientele includes Warren Buffett, Barry Diller, Michael Bloomberg, Jack Welch, Martha Stewart, Stephen Sondheim, Senator Chuck Schumer, and the Queen of Morocco. Cohen’s performance at The Fairmont Copley Plaza will feature his signature trick, Think-A-Drink, where he will pour different drinks, requested by random audience members, from the same magic teapot. He will also read the minds of even the most skeptical guests and miraculously move objects without touching them.
The Fairmont Copley Plaza is located at 138 St. James Avenue in Boston’s Back Bay.
