Glenn Gary – Magical Things and Mysterious Happenings

The Greatest Show in Town….
Change “magic show” to “intimate theatrical experience” and add lots of laughter, applause, “oohs and aahs” – plus the fact that there is not a bad seat in the house – and you have the beginning impression of Glenn Gary's Parlor Magic Show currently running at the Westin City Center Hotel (1400 M St. NW, Washington, DC).
And don't let the word “parlor” fool you, it's cozy like shows from the past, but it is indeed state of the art. The audience is a bit closer in this show than in Mr. Gary's larger stage production, so everyone gets a close up look that makes the dove production, the mystifying disappearances and appearing anomalies just so much more curious and amazing than they are on the bigger stage.
And being closer makes reaching the audience for participation that much easier too, serving to make them all part of the show. One of the most pleasing aspects is how Mr. Gary approaches the audience and interacts – no one is ever made to feel uncomfortable or pressured to participate in a joke. His sensitivity to the crowd is in full force even during his most complicated trick, and he always lets the audience call the shots where humor is concerned – if an audience member pops up with something that brings a chuckle, Mr. Gary plays it well, but he never makes a member of his audience feel like they were put on the spot with an insensitive joke. Mr. Gary states,”Respect is paramount, no one likes to be made a fool of. Though magic, by its nature, does fool us all, it can be done in a way that does not make anyone feel foolish.” And that is exactly what Mr. Gary accomplishes in his show.
Glenn Gary uses magic as a medium to entertain, but the actual magic tricks are not THE entertainment, per se… it is the comedy, the drama, acting, reacting and letting the audience get into the act and do the magic that really makes the show.
And that certainly appears to be so, as Mr. Gary has been filling seats at the Westin City Center Hotel for quite a while now. He is certainly available for other engagements, stage shows and events but if you wish to catch him for an evening of good old fun, all you need to know is right here:
Shows every Wednesday and Friday evenings in The Fireplace Parlor at The Westin Hotel, 1400 M Street NW in Washington, DC at 8:00 PM. Tickets are $45 per person. We are happy to make special arrangements for groups over 40, group discounts available for groups of 10, 20, 30, and 40.
See you all at the show…!
