Sam Eaton is a very personable gentleman and his magic and mentalism show, The Quantum Eye is a very pleasant way to spend 75 minutes on a Saturday afternoon in the East Village. Sam Eaton uses his well-developed skills in the art of mentalism, as he points out in the program, using the powers of suggestion, memorization, calculation and his ability to "read" people's minds to entertain an audience of all ages.
The Quantum Eye relies heavily on audience participation. As you settle into the theatre, do not be surprised if Mr. Eaton introduces himself. As The Thespian mentioned, he is very charming and easy to talk to and even the most reluctant or shy member of the audience will be set at ease. There is a very good chance that you will be called upon to take part in the performance. And, Mr. Eaton proves time and again that no matter how much you think you will be able to trick him or figure out how he does his acts of mental skill, he astounds you each and every time.
The Thespian was chosen to participate in two of Mr. Eaton's routines. Let it be stated for the record that The Thespian did not meet Mr. Eaton prior to settling down in the audience and he had no idea that The Thespian would review the performance. The Thespian was delightfully impressed by the close up look at how Mr. Eaton performs and would highly recommend that anyone eagerly volunteer to participate in the fun. There is absolutely nothing objectionable in the performance and it is appropriate for a family audience.
The Quantum Eye: Magic & Mentalism is performed on Saturdays at 5 p.m. at the historic Theatre 80 located in St. Mark's Place in the East Village of New York City. Sam Eaton is also available for other engagements. For tickets and other performance information please visit. www.QuantumEye.com.
