Magician Ben Seidman has been featured on Netflix, Travel Channel, and the CW—but for this very special night, he'll perform live in your living room. Throughout a spellbinding 45 minutes, Ben will invite you into a hidden world of sleight of hand and psychological magic in a show written exclusively for Atlas Obscura.Guests will be part of an interactive performance full of incredible prestidigitation, but there's a catch... Throughout the evening, one of Ben's miracles will utilize a camera trick—and it's your job to figure out which routine is tainted. Can you spot which illusion is the fake? Or can sleight of hand rival camera trickery? You'll have to tune in and find out. This virtual experience combines Ben’s acclaimed magical creations with secrets that are over 200 years old, passed down to only a select few conjurors. The result is a delightful and awe-inspiring night that will remind you there is still magic in the world.
