Santa Monica Playhouse

Extended through January 29!

"a Night of Intimate Magic,

The Show

Modern Parlor Magic starring David Carlo is an intimate evening of magic, mentalism and theater reminiscent of the Victorian era shows set in homes in New York, London and Paris. Performed in an intimate theater and accompanied by live music by innovative musician and performer Michael Gadsby. Carlo astonishes with miraculous illusions, close-up mysteries, powerful mind reading and even his version of the classic, deadly bullet catch.

Along the way, the exuberant storyteller transports the audience to the turn of the 20th century in an Upper Eastside, New York City apartment, where an extraordinary magic show occurred in 1895.

David Carlo’s exclusive engagements are limited in seating to ensure an elegant, intimate experience. Interactive participation by all audience members is the key ingredient for making each show unique and special.
