The Amazing Max: Show Review by Alyson Treglia

The Amazing Max is a one man performance starring Max Darwin and produced by Christine Cox.

It is an interactive magical show for the whole family (recommended age 3 and up).  Prior to the show, premium ticket holders can engage in the VIP Magic Lounge and experience how to learn about magic as they sit on the stage.  They are given a lesson using a magic plastic ball and vase. Kids are taught how to do a magic trick that they can take home and perform on their own.

Every child should see The Amazing Max at least once. Many children have the opportunity to go on stage and be part of the performance with Max, which was a a special bonus for the kids.  Each child on stage is presented with a magic wand they get to keep.

Max is engaging, witty and smart as he fights with swords battling a large taco, makes a ring disappear and then appear and even fries/burns a young boys sneaker. My son’s favorite part was when The Amazing Max miraculously made it snow indoors. The crowd was amazed, entertained and awestruck.  Max leaves you wanting more.

Following each performance, Max is kind enough to speak personally with fans. He takes pictures and signs autographs. He is not only a skilled magician, but a gentleman and charming crowd pleaser. The show is absolutely delightful and fun for the entire family. Every child is guaranteed to have a wonderful experience.

My five year old son loved the performance and was thrilled to be standing on stage with Max. He did not want to leave the stage or let go of his magic wand. Afterwards he said, “I loved it! I don’t want to go home!”

The 60 minute show is running through January 4th at Theater 71 at 152 West 71st. in NYC.
