Come one, come all! Sam Eaton’s The Quantum Eye is a blast for all ages! The complexity of Eaton’s tricks make the show intriguing to adults, while Eaton’s fun nature makes the show enjoyable for kids and teens. The show is the longest running one-man Off-Broadway show! Playing for over 9 years, it is worth checking out!
Eaton’s combination of magic and mentalism will leave you mind blown. The Quantum Eye is not your typical magic show with bunnies and magic wands. Eaton uses mentalism, the art of discerning the truth and details about a person’s life through supernatural powers, as well as magic, perception and deception to create a mind-boggling adventure. Wether guessing your pet’s name or figuring out your friend’s age, Eaton is always filled with out of this world magic.
Stage fright? You better hide! The show will not go on without a fun audience. The Quantum Eye depends on audience participation. You will not leave the theater without wondering if he is going to pick you to come up on stage. Eaton’s magic involves deceiving the audience. Eaton may seem as if he can magically read your mind but he is actually deceiving you into believing something that never actually happened. Even if you are not asked to volunteer on stage, Eaton’s enthusiastic and engaging personality makes you feel as if you are part of the show.
How does he do it? Everyone’s thoughts are the same at the end of the show. There is simply no explanation behind Sam Eaton’s magic. Sam Eaton is a one-of-a-kind man with a skill for one-of-a-kind magic.
The show is held at Theater 80, which proves to be a perfect location for The Quantum Eye because it is very small and intimate. Regardless of where you sit, you can always see the stage perfectly. In addition, Eaton will pick volunteers from both the very front and the very back of the theater to ensure that everyone is included. Theater 80 is located behind a quaint little bar that you walk through to get to the show. The bar even serves crepes.
Located on St. Mark’s Place, Theater 80 is situated in a fun and happening neighborhood. Filled with quirky shops, tattoo parlors and good food, St. Mark’s has a sense of character not found everywhere in the city. From the Latin Vegan café to the Spot Dessert Bar, there is always delicious food at your fingertips. I recommend journeying down St. Mark’s Place after you’re wowed by Eaton’s The Quantum, Eye!
There’s a reason The Quantum Eye is the longest running one-man Off-Broadway show! I’ve seen it twice within the past six months- that’s how amazing it is! I have gone back on a quest to discover an explanation behind the magic yet I leave his exiting show the second time with no answers and just as amazed. The Quantum Eye definitely deserves a 5 star rating!
