Mentalist and magician Gary Ferrar’s world premiere of NOTHING HERE IS REAL, directed by Harrison Kramer, begins its residency and open-ended run at The Cocktail Lounge Below Tom Valenti’s Oxbow Tavern on April 30, 2019.
For a single night each month, join Gary Ferrar, one of New York’s most sought-after entertainers, for a mind-bending evening of magic and mentalism. Come gather around an antique pool table in an underground parlor to become part of an intimate experience that will leave you questioning what, if anything, is actually real.
The Huffington Post raves, “This guy’s show is absolutely insane!” and Forbes Magazine describes Ferrar’s act as “a nuanced parlor show with intimate mentalism.”
Performances take place every last Tuesday of the month at 7:30pm on April 30, May 28, and June 25. The running time is approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes, including intermission.
Gary Ferrar (Creator, Performer) draws on his love for theater and improvisation in more than 300 performances each year, from live national TV appearances on Fox News, to performing for Howard Stern, Sharon Osbourne, and Howie Mandel on Season 7 of “America’s Got Talent.” Clients like Google, Facebook, and Spotify have all called on Gary to produce entertainment that is both theatrical and mind-blowing for corporate events, product launches, and digital marketing campaigns, such as Buzzfeed’s “Drunk Magic” video, which has been viewed over one million times. Gary has served as a magic consultant for television commercials for Samsung and as a publicity consultant for Lionsgate’s Now You See Me franchise. In addition to performing, Gary has lectured for the oldest magic society in the U.S. and provides private lessons on magic theory for celebrities and influencers such as Ivanka Trump and Ralph Lauren.
