Magician Max Maven Comes to the Emelin, 1/26

Max Maven THINKING IN PERSON: AN EVENING OF KNOWING AND NOT KNOWING is not exactly a one-man show, because it involves hundreds of minds... including yours.

Max Maven THINKING IN PERSON: AN EVENING OF KNOWING AND NOT KNOWING comes to the Emelin Theatre on SATURDAY JANUARY 26, 2013 @8PM. Tickets are $39- $49 and are available by calling BOX OFFICE at 914.698.0098 or by visiting emelin.org. This special attraction is not suitable for children younger than 12.

People magazine hailed Max Maven's work as "a new form of participatory theater." Orson Welles wrote that Max Maven has "the most original mind in magic." Fortuitously, he died before he could revise that opinion.
The New York Times observed that Max's "category-defying mind-reading show veers into conceptual art." The Los Angeles Times stated that Maven's "improvisational skill is enhanced by a charismatic animal magnetism." No, we don't know exactly what that's supposed to mean, but apparently audiences in over three dozen countries agree.

Max Maven THINKING IN PERSON: AN EVENING OF KNOWING AND NOT KNOWING received a "GO" rating from the L.A. Weekly. Steven Leigh Morris wrote, "I'm dazzled"-and concluded, "Maven aims to challenge our assumptions of what we think we know with the mystery of what we can't know. It's more than a ruse to amaze with trickery, it's a magic act woven into slivers of metaphysics."

Magic magazine named Maven as one of the 20th century's 100 most influential people in the field of theatrical magic, citing his ability for "entertaining and astonishing audiences with his bizarre brand of mental magic. ... Most of Maven's mind-boggling feats are accomplished through psychological subterfuge that he himself has cunningly created."

The Chicago Tribune praised him as being "wonderfully esoteric," while the London Stage found Max to be "delightfully droll." Variety summed it up: "The combo of mental marvels and serpent-like humor marks Maven as an original."
Recently, the show had a successful off-Broadway run in New York. When famed television host Dick Cavett came to see it, he pronounced it "Sensational! So bloody entertaining!" We think you'll agree.
