If you are a first-timer to Steve Cohen’s show, Chamber Magic, like I was only recently, here are three tips for an even better experience:
- The suite where the show is staged is not located directly at the Waldorf Astoria hotel, but at the adjoining Waldorf Towers. You may want to use their extra side entrance to get to the right registration desk. If you decide to take a walk around the famous hotel first (which I would highly recommend), simply turn left in the dark, sumptuous main lobby and take the elevator down to the ground floor. Later, you will be guided upstairs to the suite.
- If you are not a front row aficionado (like Dave of L&L video fame), you may want to save the extra bucks for a front row seat and stick with a general admission ticket (currently priced at 85$). Just make sure to enter the elevator with the first group of visitors. After entering the suite, you will likely find many empty seats with exellent sight lines to choose from.
- Get at least a souvenir booklet and have it kindly signed by Steve after the show. Choose your items from the online gift shop before ordering your tickets.
