Sadly The owners of Cafe Edison have lost their fight to remain open at their present location in the Hotel Edison and will close on Sunday 12/21. The Cafe Edison has been home to the magic table lunch gathering since the Mid 80’s. The Table will find a new home in the theater district area.

JASON LADANYE LECTURE
When: Thursday – December 4, 2014 – 7:45pm
Where: Mt Sinai Hospital in NYC, Lecture Room TBD
Price: Free to S.A.M. PA #1 members; $20 to S.A.M. members; $25 for non-members


Jason Ladanye recently published his first book, Confident Deceptions. This is a collection of his strongest eighteen effects created over the past fifteen years. On December 4th, Jason will teach his favorite effects from these pages. You might be surprised to find out that the most powerful effects are the easiest to do.

In this lecture, Jason teaches how to push a deck of cards through the table (from under the spectator’s hand.) Learn how to transfer a spectator’s signature from the face of a card to the face of another. And, you’ll learn one of the strongest two-card transpositions in print. (The card is face up and in the spectator’s hand!)

His approach to magic is simple. It’s not about new complicated sleight of hand. Jason looks for original plots and uses time-tested well-known sleights to achieve miracles for laymen. The tricks are practical and logical. Each effect is a chance to tell the audience an entertaining story. Powerful and entertaining magic is what Confident Deceptions is all about.
