While I don’t claim to be a theatre conniseur, that doesn’t stop me from enjoying it any less. Last week my friend, Sheena LaShay, offered me (and a friend) the opportunity to preview the Max Maven production that she’s been stage managing. I hadn’t been to see any shows in a while so it was fun to get out and see some magic, figuratively and literally.
Max Maven Thinking in Person is a truly unique experience. It’s a magic show and a little more than that; mysticism, metaphysics and philosophy. I don’t want to give away anything because it’s totally worth going out to see. These aren’t your typical magic acts that Max Maven is performing. Many times throughout the show, I was in awe as he read total strangers’ minds. This stuff couldn’t be rigged; even Sheena, that stage manager of this production, hasn’t figured out “how” he does these amazing things during the show. So if you like magic with a bit of improve, humor, witty quotes from great philosophers and writers and a little of the unknown you will definitely enjoy the show. Even if you’re not a magic fan or are a skeptic, this show will leave your mind blown as you try to figure out “how he did that”.
The show opened last Thursday, June 14 and will continue until July 1st. www.maxmavenoffbroadway.com
