Last weekend was the first time in ages that I was able to have a date night. Our destination was the Patrick Terry produced WONDERSHOW taking place for one weekend only in Brooklyn.
WONDERSHOW was a 3-night spectacle of mystery and mischief featuring the world famous Jon Stetson, the inspiration for TV’s The Mentalist, Master Lee (Late Night with Conan O’Brien), TJ Tana (Masters of Illusion), The Great Throwdini (Winner of The Merlin Award, 40 Guinness World Records, The Late Show with David Letterman) Ben Nemser (Hollywood’s Magic Castle), prima burlesque ballerina Aurora Black, with Audra Isadora as the evenings Master of Ceremonies. A highlight of some of the performers (Master Lee, The Great Throwdini and Aurora Black)

WONDERSHOW is nothing you’d expect and everything you imagine! All of the performers were minfuckingly awesome! But my absolute favorites were TJ Tana the master illusionist. I am still trying to figure out all his tricks. I sat in my seat utterly captivated by his ability to make 2 and 3 birds appear despite the fact that I was staring at him the entire time, without blinking. And headliner, John Stetson the inspiration behind the mentalist, with his ability to see into people’s minds was freaky. He was able to tell an audience member who they were talking to on the phone, and I don’t mean by luckily picking a name out of thin air. He knew the gender, name and phone number of the person on the other line. Which lead up to his final trick of the night, I thought for sure the audience member had stumped him. Oh, no. He showed all of us that everything on the board went directly back to the item she had chosen. It was amazing!
It was truly an entertaining show and we look forward to future events. If WONDERSHOW comes to your town, buy a ticket and go.
