BWW JR: The Amazing Max Special Needs Performance


On June 23rd at 1:00 PM, the Amazing Max (Magician Max Darwin) will be presenting a special performance of The Amazing Max and the Box of Interesting Things for children with special needs.  This sensory-friendly presentation of the hit Off-Broadway show will be adjusted to the sensitivities of children with autism and other special needs.  Handicap accessible seating will be available, as well as a quiet area reserved for any children who may feel overwhelmed during the performance.

As I reported last fall, The Amazing Max and The Box of Interesting Things at Manhattan Movement and Arts Center is a traditional children's magic show with many a modern twist.  Max Darwin manages to enthrall children while still entertaining adults, all while gracefully executing sight-of-hand tricks and improvisational comedy. 

The Amazing Max and The Box of Interesting Things special needs friendly show will beperformed at the MMAC Theater located in the Manhattan Movement & Arts Center at 248 W. 60th Street, NYC (between Amsterdam and West End Avenues) in the Lincoln Center area.


A limited number of discounted tickets are available for $20.   Reservations are required and must be made using the online reservation form, or call 212-496-2147.

Following the performance children will the opportunity to meet The Amazing Max, who will be signing autographs.  There will also be special giveaways.  For more information, visit or
