For those who only believe what they see, Steve Cohen invites you to come close, really close. A master magician whose repertoire is designed to engage the mind as much as the eye, Cohen’s Chamber Magic hearkens back to an era when wealthy patrons secured the services of elite wonder-workers to transform a salon into a stage and mesmerize family and friends with magic. Known as the “Millionaires’ Magician,” Cohen has performed the role of a society performer for over a decade at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York. As the show is designed to be experienced up close, fewer than 70 Patrons will be admitted to each performance. With an adults-only mandate, audience members are asked to dress to impress in cocktail attire.
Steve Cohen, who hails from New York City, has been presenting his Chamber Magic show since April 2000. The show was inspired by the term “chamber music”, the intimate form of classical music typically performed in affluent homes and sophisticated venues. When creating the show, Steve was also influenced by the Viennese magician Johann Nepomuk Hofzinser (1806-1875) who performed his works of wonder in private salons for elite members of society.
Today, Steve regularly presents Chamber Magic at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York with notable guests in attendance including Warren Buffett, Michael Bloomberg, the Queen of Morocco and the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia.
In 2005, Steve penned the book, Win the Crowd: Unlock the Secrets of Influence, Charisma and Showmanship, where he highlights the psychological secrets of magicians and how people can use these secrets in their everyday lives. He also starred in, and co-executive produced Lost Magic Decoded, a two-hour documentary that premiered on the History Channel in 2012.
