Chamber Magic is an intimate and elegant magical experience very much inspired by an earlier era of Parlor Magic. "Over the past 17 years, I created a new category of magic show," Cohen commented. "Of course magicians have performed acts in hotels before. But presenting a regular, long form, theatrical one-man parlor magic show in a luxury hotel, at premium ticket prices with a dress code, had never been done before. Magicians around the world have observed my longevity and some have tried to launch their own shows based on what they believe is my 'model.'''
Cohen launched his show at the Waldorf Astoria hotel where it played through February 2017. "The Waldorf Astoria was the perfect home," according to Cohen. "People automatically knew the show had to be of high quality because the grand hotel wouldn't associate itself with a show if it weren't exceptional. Over the years I've had the world's most illustrious magicians visit me, including David Copperfield, Derren Brown, Teller, Juan Tamariz, David Blaine, Derek DelGaudio, Eugene Burger, Jeff McBride, Siegfried, Patrick Page, Simon Aronson, John Carney, Roberto Giobbi, David Berglas, and on and on. It has been such a blessing to be supported by these artists, many of whom are my personal heroes.
"Now that the Waldorf Astoria is closed for a long-term renovation, I am fortunate to have found a perfect new home for the show. The Lotte New York Palace is located one block away from the Waldorf, at Madison and 50th Street, and my showroom looks like a drawing room in Versailles. Frankly, it is stunning! We have just signed a long-term agreement so I will be able to entertain New Yorkers and visitors at The Palace for thousands of more performances."
As of this publication date only a handful of tickets remain for Cohen's 5000th performance. For more information visit: chambermagic.com/tickets/
