Restarting Six Impossible Things
By Joshua Jay - Friday, September 20, 2019
I'm delighted to say that my Off-Broadway show, Six Impossible Things, is coming back to New York. When I'm not working on new projects for Vanishing Inc, many of you know that I perform in my own show in Manhattan. We've just extended through December 16th.
If you haven't yet come to New York to see it, I hope you'll consider making the pilgrimage. There are many reasons to come to New York this fall. Derren Brown is in town again, plus Noah Levine, Dan White, Steve Cohen, and SpeakEasy Magic are all local shows that are exceptional. You could, literally, see a magic show every night of the week. Plus, there are two great shops: Tannens and Fantasma, to check out.
My show is an immersive show, and all 20 guests participate by walking through several environments to see magic in different settings. All of the pieces I perform are unpublished, original compositions, and I work with an outstanding team each night to bring together a magic experience I don't think you'll find elsewhere.
People have asked why I continue to do the show: it's a ton of work, and I've performed it nearly 200 times so far in the previous runs. But the answer is easy: I love this show. This is a show in which I control all the variables: light, tech, material, space. And this gives me the freedom to play in ways I was never able to do in the past. When a client hires me to perform, my obligation is to provide magic under their terms and in their venue. But I always dreamed about a playground to develop material in the very best environment for a magician...and now I have that. You see a lot of me on our site, but I hope you'll venture to New York and check out our show before the run ends. You can find more info at www.siximossiblethingsshow.com.
