Description: "Max Maven Thinking In Person: An Evening of Knowing and Not Knowing" is not exactly a one-man show, because it involves hundreds of minds...including yours. Recently, the show had a successful off-Broadway run in New York.
People magazine hailed Max Maven's work as "a new form of participatory theater." The New York Times observed that Max's "category-defying mind-reading show veers into conceptual art." The Los Angeles Times stated that Maven's "improvisational skill is enhanced by a charismatic animal magnetism." We're not sure exactly what that's supposed to mean, but apparently audiences in over three dozen countries agree. Magic magazine named Maven one of the 20th century's 100 most influential people in the field of theatrical magic, citing his ability for "entertaining and astonishing audiences with his bizarre brand of mental magic...Most of Maven�s mind-boggling feats are accomplished through psychological subterfuge that he himself has cunningly created." Variety magazine summed it up: "The combo of mental marvels and serpent-like humor marks Maven as an original."
Note: program not suitable for children younger than 12.
