THE AMAZING MAX AND THE BOX OF INTERESTING THINGS Extends Through 3/1
Due to popular demand, The Amazing Max and The Box of Interesting Things, the "awesome and hilarious live magic show for the whole family" (PBS Kids) starring magician Max Darwin (aka "The Amazing Max") which just enjoyed a sold out run from November through the holidays, will play an additional six-week engagement (January 19-March 1) at the Manhattan Movement and Arts Center - MMAC (248 West 60th Street - between Amsterdam and West End Avenues) on Saturday and Sunday afternoons*.
The Amazing Max and The Box of Interesting Things is a magic show with a mind of its own. Magician Max Darwin makes objects appear out of thin air, defies the laws of physics, and performs miracles inches from spectators' faces. The props onstage seem intent on surprising even the magician himself. This out-of-control show bursts with striking visual magic, comedy, and loads of audience participation. The Amazing Max selects all of his assistants at random from the audience, and each adds a unique element to the show.
Tickets are $59.50 (Premium) and $34.50 - $49.50 (General Admission). Premium ticket holders receive access to the VIP "Magic Lounge" (which opens 25 minutes before the start of each show) and children receive Amazing Max memorabilia, participate in a magic lesson, and take home a magic trick!
