I brought a friend who was visiting us from Brazil and my husband with me. We all loved the show. Jay is very charismatic and his magic is impressive. The audience had children, teens, adults and seniors. This is a great entertainment for all ages.

Jay is delightful as he works the crowd BEFORE the show and utterly amazing during the show. Loved the intimate venue. Almost everyone in the audience had the chance to participate. A fun night for these East Coasters.

Hi. The shows are Thursday - Sunday. It is best to order the tickets online. We often sell out so by preordering the tickets it will guarantee you have tickets. We look forward to having you at the show.
