Berkshire County resident and Master of Sleight-of-Hand Magic, Carl Seiger is presenting his intimate magic show live at the Main Stage at Barrington Stage Co. in Pittsfield, MA
This show was created in 2014 for Flordia Studio Theatre in Sarasota, FL. All 32 shows sold out…and Carl earned 12 standing ovations.
Here’s what the critics had to say:
“ABRACADABRA….that is the magic word used to help magicians “make something happen” and that is exactly what Carl Seiger did over & over with his cabaret style magic show at the Florida Studio Theatre. He is a skilled entertainer who combines illusion, music and humor in his show and keeps the audience mesmerized with his witty personality. Be prepared to be dazzled by his classic card tricks, storytelling and mentalism, but what clearly separates Carl from so many other talented magicians, is his charming personality. There is an immediate chemistry between the performer and his audience as you are anxiously waiting for his next move.” Don411.com

About Carl Seiger and His Magic
Carl has been working as a sleight-of-hand magician for more than thirty years and has been involved in the world of magic for nearly forty years. He performs nationwide for audiences in a variety of venues ranging from stage and cabaret shows to corporate meetings and private parties.
Since 1996, he has personally produced and designed one-man theatrical shows that merge the illusion of theater with the art of magic. These shows have consistently received widespread critical and audience acclaim. In between theater productions, he concentrates on performing at private and corporate events. Carl revived these theater shows in 2014 with a new version of Clearly Invisible…Magic Up Close with Carl Seiger created and produced specifically for the Florida Studio Theatre in Sarasota, Florida This show ran for 32 sold-out performances, and Carl earned more than a dozen standing ovations. He then brought this production home and in 2015 presented it at the Spectrum Playhouse in Lee, MA, to two sold-out houses. Coming in November 2017, he is bringing “An Evening of Magic with Carl Seiger” to Barrington Stage Company in Pittsfield, MA.
Carl is committed to bringing fine magic to the forefront. He taught himself, and specializes in what the trade calls sleight-of-hand magic, a special brand of the mysterious art. He invests countless hours of practice with fastidious attention to detail, always striving to improve. Rarely does a day pass that Carl has not practiced. His magic is not about the flash and dazzle of special effects. Sleight-of-hand is differentiated from other styles primarily by the type of props used (coins, cards, a wine glass, a length of rope) and the performing conditions…(“close-up”) whether it is performed in the audience’s hand, or on a stage.
Carl is a native of the Berkshire Hills of Western Massachusetts; he lives on a mountaintop in Tyringham with his wife and business partner, Maura. His other interests include reading, music, kayaking, golf and nature, specifically the cosmos.
