How was your experience?
Having witnessed his performances several times in the past, I was aware that he is a talented magician; however, until seeing this extremely close-up show I never realized how truly amazing the "Amazing Sebastian" really is! In his new space, less a conventional theater than a cozy single room, Sebastian demonstrates sleight-of-hand magic with such skill and confidence he even has two audience members, one on his left and one on his right, watching him in extreme-close-up and participating in his magic. (I was fortunate enough to be one of the participants.) He also has a camera focused on the table with a large screen showing the rest of the audience exactly what is happening so no one can miss any detail. While many magicians use scantily clad assistants to distract the audience or have ringers posing as helpers "chosen randomly," Sebastian not only allows scrutiny, he encourages it. He is the real deal, not flashy or gimmicky, just an amazingly accomplished magician who will astound you with his skill and leave you wondering long afterward just how he accomplished those magnificent, up-close illusions. Spellbinding and highly watchable!
