Rhapsody Theater presents Look Closer with Joshua Jay

Fresh off a popular New York City run that launched at the legendary Carnegie Hall, internationally renowned magician Joshua Jay returns to the Rhapsody Theater with Look Closer, April 4 – 28. Look Closer follows Jay’s acclaimed show Six Impossible Things, which debuted off-Broadway and ran for more than four extensions and two years. In his latest show of magic and sleight-of-hand, Jay turns the concept of misdirection on its head. Whereas in most magic shows the magician diverts your attention, in Look Closer, audiences are invited to look very, very closely, as the shapes of the tricks change the more one focuses on them.

In addition to his highly praised Stage show Joshua will perform an intimate close-up show for up to 16 people after his shows on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturday matinees. VIP tickets include access to this exclusive event while other ticket holders can add on the experience for $20. Add-on tickets also come with one free drink ticket.
