Enjoy cocktails and cuisine while watching one of the world's best magic practitioners up close in a full evening show. You and your astonished guests will experience an evening quite unlike any theatrical performance you have ever encountered.

A truly magical hour. I promise you will be thinking about how it was done – during and after the show and probably the rest of the month!! Thoroughly entertaining – go and see it!!

[James] created the perfect ‘thinking man’s’ entertainment... one of the most original projects I have ever seen. If you enjoy having your mind expanded and your inner-child dazzled, see this show
— Tracey Erin Smith, Artistic Director, Soulo Theatre Festival

 

He has produced two acclaimed one-person shows. His first, Lies, Damn Lies & Magic Tricks (2012) which was featured at the Summerworks Performance FestivalThe Wychwood Theatre and the Hamilton Fringe Festival and challenged audiences to question what's really true by performing an entire show without telling a lie. His follow up, The Uncertainty Project (2014) launched on the eve of World Pride in Toronto and challenged the audience to expect the unexpected and shocked them with card tricks, mind-reading, appearing fish and drag queens (not necessarily in that order.)

He has also produced a number of special performances for visiting guest magicians from CanadaThe United StatesFranceSpain and Isreal. Find out more at www.abracadabaret.com

Thought-provoking, funny, astonishing and throughly entertaining. It’s a great magic display and that’s all anyone needs to know.
