Lecture - Peter Samelson
Peter Samelson is a man with a long résumé: international performer (Private, Corporate, Theatre's, Colleges, the top Cruise Lines,) headliner and producer of New York's Monday Night Magic and Magical Nights, consultant to Movies, Commercials and Broadway, star of 3 critically acclaimed Off-Broadway shows, and respected lecturer and author.

The lecture is a 2.5 hour event using multi-media to help explore and explain Peter Samelson's approach to creating Theatrical Magic. The lecture is based on his book Theatrical Close Up (long out of print, available here in a digital edition), and his unpublished Theatrical Cabaret. In the course of the Lecture, Peter teaches and performs material from his working repertoire with attention to the small details that have a huge impact and the theoretical underpinnings of why those changes matter and why they work. It includes all the core pieces that could not be covered in the Penguin lecture. The lecture covers Close Up, Parlour and Stage Magic from his professional repertoire.
