Four-Handed Illusions: Magic and Comedy at Hampshire House

Come and enjoy a truly awe-inspiring evening filled with magic and comedy at Hampshire House’s Four-Handed Illusions event with magicians Joel Acevedo and Steve Kradolfer. Acevedo and Kradolfer have been mystifying audiences for a combined 35 years, specializing in a unique performance of comedy-meets-magic filled with brain-twisting tricks like teleportation and mind-reading peppered with razor-sharp humor. This unforgettable, intimate event is open to just 50 people, so guests will get an up-close-and-personal experience inside the Hampshire House’s cozy and sophisticated Library Room.

The evening begins with a pre-show reception, a half-hour before showtime in the Hampshire House’s stately Baker Bar. Event-goers can take advantage of a cash bar — open during the pre-show reception and intermission — and enjoy light hors d’oeuvres before the show begins. Hampshire House will offer two show times on Sunday, March 22: 3:30 p.m. with a reception at 3 p.m., and 7 p.m. with a reception at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are available here.
