THE CLOSE-UP GALLERY FEATURING BRETT SCHNEIDER

Brett Schneider has been performing magic professionally for over 15 years and is a member of the Magic Castle in Hollywood, California. His work has received numerous awards and citations including ‘San Francisco Stage Magician of the Year’ and he was a finalist at the World Magic Seminar. In addition to magic performance, Brett also works as an illusion designer and magic consultant for theatre, television, and film. His theatrical work has been twice-nominated for a Jeff Award and has appeared in venues such as The Goodman Theatre, The Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Lookingglass Theatre, and the Roundabout Theatre in New York. Brett’s illusion design has also been incorporated into TV shows (Sirens on USA), music videos, short films, and features. And coming in the Fall of 2016, Brett will star in The Goodman Theatre’s production of The Magic Play, a story about a magician. Find out more at brettschneidermagic.com.


Inspired by the legendary Magic Castle in LA, and Magic Circle in London, we are bringing you an exclusive, 40 tickets only, experience called the Close Up Gallery. Buy an upgraded ticket, and join a magician in the Starlight Lounge at 9:30 pm for an intimate look at close-up magic. No stage, just a table and 40 audience members. This is a peek into the real world of classic, close-up, table magic.

Premium and Deluxe Ticket holders are guaranteed a seat in the Close-Up Gallery.
