Jeanette Andrews: Jeanette Andrews is hailed as one of the most innovative illusionists in the world today and has staged hundreds of sold-out and standing-room-only performances.


She presented her first magic performance at age four, was paid to do her first magic show at age six, began running her business that day and has never had another job since, and is now internationally recognized as a pioneer in her field. Andrews uses sensory anomalies, art and scientific anecdotes to create luxurious experiences that bridge everyday life to a special, heightened world. She loves creating experiences for audiences to engage with the impossible in fun, insightful, generous ways. 


Andrews is an Affiliate of Harvard’s metaLAB and prior artist in residence for High Concept Labs and The Institute for Art and Olfaction. Illusion is Ms. Andrews’ life’s work and her performances have been praised by the Chicago Tribune, PBS and the New York Times.


Rached Wax: Rachel Wax has been studying magic since the age of 16. Inspired by her father’s ability to make people laugh and amaze them simultaneously, she strives to do the same in each performance.


Originally from Chicago, Rachel moved to New York in 2013 to study fashion design at FIT. With a love of both magic and fashion, she found opportunities to pursue both.


Rachel now performs at venues all over the country appearing as a regular at New York City magic shows A Taste of Magic and Speakeasy Magick at the Mckittrick Hotel, Monday Night Magic, the Chicago Magic Lounge, as well as television appearances that include Master of Illusion, Penn and Teller’s Fool Us and Fox 5. 


Alexander Boyce: When it comes to magic, Alexander Boyce is a contradiction. He’s experienced yet young, old school but hip, mischievous yet authentic. From appearances at The Magic Castle in Hollywood to the long running hit Speakeasy Magick at The McKittrick Hotel in NYC, Boyce leaves audiences with an astonished smile. His magical work was recently put to use as the Magic Consultant at Lincoln Center and the Netflix feature, The Week Of. Recently, he was one of the first American magicians to be invited to entertain in Cuba since the revolution. Alexander considers himself lucky in that he gets to share the magic that he’s so passionate about with audiences all over the world.
