A Word on Cohen

Recently, I finally managed to see Steve Cohen’s long-running show, Chamber Magic, in an elegant suite (see picture below) at the legendary Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York City.

Steve is a consummate pro, his show is charmingly traditional, yet fast-paced, interactive, very entertaining and highly deceptive, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Highly recommended!

From a magician’s perspective, I find three aspects of his program particularly worth mentioning:

  1. He opened and closed with card magic.
  2. He presented both his signature pieces, Brick from Hat and Any Drink Called For, rather early in the show.
  3. He did a lot of mentalism (and I mean a lot).
