In a city where architecture seems to defy gravity and buildings appear and disappear in the blink of an eye, New York has long served as a premier venue for the world’s most renowned magicians. From Harry Houdini to Al Flosso to Jeff Sheridan, the city continues to attract and foster entertainers from around the world. In keeping with this tradition, New-York Historical presents an evening of dazzling fun with celebrity magician Matt Wayne.
