New York's First Ever Immersive Close-Up Magic Experience Performed by World Renowned Magician Joshua Jay July 28

World Renowned Magician Joshua Jay, will present the first-ever immersive close-up magical experience, with his newest creation, Six Impossible Things, directed by Luke Jermay.

Tickets are $106-$126 and can be purchased at

Performing for only 20 people, Joshua Jay's Six Impossible Things moves audiences through several rooms where a new mystery unfolds to reveal an impossible "thing". During the course of 75 minutes Jay will attempt to read thoughts, manipulate decisions and even alter taste buds in the first and only immersive close-up magic show. The six astounding magic effects, are all original creations of master magician Joshua Jay. The artwork throughout the space is created by celebrated artist Serge Block.

"After traveling the world performing, I am thrilled to present this one-of-a-kind show in my first New York City residency at The Mist. Everything that audience members see, in Six Impossible Things, is completely original and created specifically for this show. The audience and I will travel through the space together experiencing "impossible things." Everyone gets a front row "seat" but they will not just see a magic show, they are part of the show." Joshua Jay
