JUST LIKE MAGIC

Genre: Comedy
The New York Musical Theatre Festival, Steven Cunningham with associate producer John Von Herget

Having performed magic shows at birthday parties throughout the New York City living room circuit, JUST LIKE MAGIC is the chance to see this talented performer live.

But this is no ordinary magic show…

Christopher T. Magician and his entourage have been hired to perform at a child’s birthday party, but the show turns decidedly dark as Christopher suffers a complete mental breakdown in front of his young audience.  Think “Blue’s Clues” meets “Hedwig and the Angry Inch”!  What begins as a fun magic show featuring toe-tapping songs, comedy, and puppetry ends with dead puppets and children scarred for life in this decidedly not-for-kids musical. (Oh and there’s magictricks.  Super Awesome Magic Tricks!)

Additionally, in the style of The [title of show] show, the creativeteam behind JUST LIKE MAGIChave launched: OPERATION: SUTTON, a multi-part YouTube video campaign  featuring Christopher T. Magician asking, begging, pleading, even bribing two time Tony Award winning Broadway star Sutton Foster, to behis date to the NYMF opening night gala on September 26. Will Ms. Foster say yes? Will she even know the campaign is going on? Who knows….
