Camera Tricks with Ben Seidman


Friday, September 18 at 8pm


The all-new live interactive magic experience, Camera Tricks with Ben Seidman, is streaming direct to at-home audiences. With his unique blend of psychological magic, clever comedy, and an artful sleight of hand, Seidman delivers a fun, one-of-a-kind, magic experience that keeps audiences guessing. Following an appearance on Penn & Teller's Fool Us, a guest starring role on Netflix's Brainchild, and as the only person in history to be named Resident Magician at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Seidman has secured his position as one of today's hottest magic acts.

Max Major-Remote Control: A Mind Reading Experiment Live on Zoom


Thursday, October 1 at 8pm

This family-friendly interactive Zoom experience remotely controls the viewers actions and predicts their thoughts LIVE on screen through the powers of hypnosis and mentalism. Major has appeared on the TODAY show and America's Got Talent, as well as dozens of viral videos that have stunned millions across the internet. Not just a show, Remote Control: A Mind Reading Experiment is an incredible, hands-on experience. The intrigue kicks off before the show even begins when viewers receive a TOP SECRET package in the mail. It must remain sealed until the show begins.


Capacity is limited to only 40 passes per performance (each ticket allows viewing on one device). To receive the TOP SECRET package, orders must be placed six days prior to the October 1 Zoom event. Orders placed after this point will not receive a package. However, viewers who miss the date to receive the package will still have a fantastic time, and won't miss out on a mind-blowing, interactive experience.

Suzanne Vega

An Evening of New York Songs and Stories

Wednesday, October 7 at 9pm


Coming in October, an at-home live-stream of Suzanne Vega's hit show (and now album) An Evening of New York Songs and Stories. Performed live at the iconic Blue Note Jazz club, the New York-themed setlist includes favorites like "Luka," "Tom's Diner," "Marlene on the Wall," "Ludlow," and Lou Reed's "Walk on the Wild Side." One of the foremost storytelling songwriters of her generation, Suzanne's "clear, unwavering voice" (Rolling Stone) has been described as "a cool, dry sandpaper-brushed near-whisper" by The Washington Post.
