You know the Ace Hotel New York even if you have never been there. Check out their website to see the iconic building with tons of history and literary connections. If we are not mistaken (and their is a very good chance we are), our very favorite short story writer, O. Henry lived in one of the rooms of the building way back in the day.
Zach Alexander, Michael Karas and RJ The Magician will be appearing in their show The New Face of Magic tomorrow, December 14th in Liberty Hall at Ace Hotel New York.
So there is a fine mixture of the past and future awaiting you. Once you are seated and watching the show, it will then be the past, present and future. We suppose that goes without saying and so . . .
The title of the show is fitting for performances by new magicians that push the art of the craft forward.
Mr. Alexander has been featured on ABC Morning News and is a member of our art’s very secret society, The International Brotherhood of Magicians.
Joining Mr. Alexander will be RJ the Magician. He truly is part of the coming generation of magicians. His objective is not only to entertain but also “prove that magic and civic engagement can help contribute to modern society.” He is a member of the International Association of Black Magical Artists; and was the winner of their 2018 “Rising Star” Award.
Mr. Karas is an international award-winning juggler. He has toured the world for more than a decade with his very unique and comedic juggling routine.
If we were in New York, we’d stay at the Ace Hotel if only for the history and O. Henry’s legacy (assuming we’re correct about his residence there) but if we had a choice of nights to stay, it would be tonight and tomorrow to catch The New Face of Magic show.
If you are anywhere in the vicinity of New York city, you should check out the show and see these three amazing performers.
