Dickens Parlour Theatre Presents: Peter Samelson
Come to Dickens Parlour Theatre October 10th - 12th & be amazed by Peter Samelson!
Peter Samelson insists that he doesn¹t do magic; he only helps people to see it. He is an illusionist / entertainer / philosopher, blending simplicity and sophistication as he provokes thought and inspires wonder. Within the magic community, Peter is highly regarded as a performer, lecturer and author. Christened the soft-spoken conceptualist of sorcery by the New York Times, Peter has distinguished himself not only as a magician, but as an artist. He has performed atop the Great Wall of China, for Mexican peasants and Grand Prix race car drivers, Princess Stephanie of Monaco, the jet-set of Paris and the fishermen mending their nets on the beaches of Cartegena. Peter performs and designs for television, film and theater. Most recently he created magic for Sam Mendes productions (for BAM and The Old Vic) of Cherry Orchard and Winters Tale. The New York Times referred to one creation as a charming theatre. Other projects including the musical Houdini, the films What About Bob and Whispers in the Dark, hosting a syndicated 13 part Magic series, and appearances on the Today Show, CNN¹s Sonya Live! and the PBS Special, The Art of Magic. He has also created and starred in two critically acclaimed one-man Off-Broadway shows; The Magician and PaperWork.
