“The Amazing Max and the Box of Interesting Things” is a magic show that we found entertaining: full of silly physical humor, stunning magic tricks and hilarious antics, we thought it was not only a great kids’ show but one for parents too. This isn’t a show that you ask, “How did he do that?!”  It’s not that Max doesn’t do great tricks, he does. It’s that the show is so focused on the hijinks of Hamlet the mind-reading pig and other silliness, that the audience doesn’t have time to focus on the head-scratching tricks that Max performs. The magic is just the sideshow to a very engaging performance. (Our full review of the show is here.)

We are giving away a family 4 pack of tickets to “The Amazing Max and the Box of Interesting Things”!

In addition, all of our readers will be able to get discounted tickets by using discount code AMPROMO5 at

  20. My 5 year old just said, “I really want to see the magic show, because it’s cool and I love magic tricks. Maybe he could teach me a magic trick, and I could show my friends?” We are only going to be in New York one day, Sat. the 28th. This would make this trip unforgettable! Thanks!
