Monday Night Magic, New York’s longest-running Off-Broadway magic show, is produced by Michael Chaut, Todd Robbins, Peter Samelson, and Jamy Ian Swiss.
Since its inception, Monday Night Magic has provided a first-class setting for the presentation and enjoyment of magic that eschews the use of giant props, scantily clad assistants, wild animals, and Las Vegas frills. Rather, the show features professional entertainers who perform skillful magic accompanied by distinctive personalities. It’s an evening of sophisticated performance for adult and family audiences.
Every show features four performers on stage featuring diverse performing styles and types of magic; during the extended intermission, at least two magicians in various locations throughout the theatre presenting intimate close-up magic. The roster is a veritable Who’s Who of Magic. By the same token, Monday Night Magic has provided unique opportunities for young performers to earn their stripes and get a chance to be seen by the public. The producers are proud of the many young performers who made some of their earliest appearances at Monday Night Magic, and are now not only regular performers at the weekly show, but are operating as successful full-time professionals in New York City and across the country.
The show makes new magic fans each and every week, and also serves longstanding fans and welcomes visiting magicians from around the world. Monday Night Magic is truly New York City’s home for magic.
And so it is magic but it’s no miracle that “Monday Night Magic” has thrived, and, now in its 19th year. It can be found at the Players Theatre, located at 115 Macdougal St., between West 3rd Street and Bleecker.
With more than 900 performances under its award-winning belt, the show has been featured in virtually every major press and media outlet in New York, was singled out as “New York’s Best Magical Venue” by “TimeOut NY” magazine, awarded a “Best of Manhattan” by the “New York Press,” and its performers have been featured in countless television appearances, including on national programs like “Good Morning America” and repeat appearances on “The Today Show.” No wonder that the producers, via the show’s parent firm, Magical Nights Inc., provide magic and more for top corporate and private events, with a client list that starts with the Fortune-100 and ends with hundreds of satisfied clients from coast to coast and beyond.
