Downtown Magic: Peter Samelson

Peter Samelson insists that he doesn’t do magic; he only helps people to see it, and his new family-friendly show will delight, amaze and touch you. Peter is collaborating with Ted Killmer to create Magic in the Time of Madness, an irreverent look at the current Mad and Maddening World, seen through the eyes of a magician.

"Samelson is an exciting showman who combines illusion with philosophy, mime and mental exercises."
     ~ Los Angeles, California
Christened “the soft-spoken conceptualist of sorcery” by The New York Times, Peter created and starred in three critically acclaimed one-man Off-Broadway shows, and has designed magic for two Broadway productions, Leap of Faith and Harvey. Peter is an illusionist/entertainer/philosopher, blending simplicity and sophistication as he provokes thought and inspires wonder.
"... a splendid performance."
~ The New Jersey Shakespeare Festival
"... he 'makes' us want to believe ... fantastic!"
     ~ Rainbow Room, New York City, NY
