Four-Handed Illusions Comedy Show is Boston's Quintessential Night Out for Adults

As Boston's "only intimate evening of laughs and wonder," Four-Handed Illusions was not surprisingly voted Boston's Best Theater Group 2016 by the Boston A-List. Four-Handed Illusions turns any ordinary night out into a magical one. The show features illusionists Joel Acevedo and Steve Kradolfer in a unique mix of magic, mind-reading, and comedy. Shows are catered to the 21-plus crowd and are described as "intelligent comedy" alongside "amazing magic" to give adults a fun night out.

The evening starts 30 minutes before the show officially begins. There's a pre-show reception at the Hampshire's House Baker Bar and light appetizers are served and included in each ticket price. The cash bar offers a wide-range of cocktails and other beverages. After the cocktail hour, guests take their seats in the Library room and the show begins.

The audience is an intimate one consisting of only 50 guests. Keeping the audience size small is what allows each guest to interact with the performers and experience all the illusions up close. No matter where you sit, you're close to the action. The show is two hours long including a short intermission. Joel Acevedo and Steve Kradolfer host two shows, once per month.

Acevedo has been a fan of magic since he was a kid. By day, he works as an engineer at MIT, but he has also travelled all over the United States, Puerto Rico and Spain performing magic. He also teaches magic courses at the renown Ana Tamariz School of Magic in Madrid.

"I was a kid when I fell in love with magic," Acevedo says. "I saw a magician on TV whose entertaining performance created emotions so memorable that motivated me to find ways to share the arcane art of magic with others."

As for Kradolfer, he is one of the founders of Boston's The Mystery Lounge and frequently is hired by Fortune 500 companies, universities, and comedy clubs all over the world for entertainment. He has performed in front of thousands of people over the course of his 20-year career.

Tickets for Four-Handed Illusions can be found online for $55 per person and include a cocktail hour with light appetizers. Seats are assigned upon arrival and guests are asked to dress in cocktail attire.
