The show is approximately 75 minutes and includes a cocktail and a hard-backed volume not otherwise for sale.

Six Impossible Things has been built into Wildrence, an acclaimed event space on the Lower East Side. In each room, a new mystery unfolds to reveal an impossible 'thing'.

You will see six astounding magic effects, all original compositions by master magician Joshua Jay.

The show is strictly limited to twenty persons per show, and reservations are limited to groups of eight or less.

Tickets are $106—136.

There are no refunds or exchanges. All ticket sales are final. If a show is sold out, you are welcome to try our standby policy (see below).

Doors open fifteen minutes before showtime and the show begins promptly at the designated hour. Absolutely no late admittance or refunds offered.

Due to the nature of the show, guests are admitted JUST ONCE to Six Impossible Things . So pay attention, enjoy, and don't blink.


Yep. It's an insanely poor business decision, but the show is designed to surprise and dazzle ONCE. Due to our limited run, we must allow a maximum number of people to experience the show. We're keeping a database, and anyone recognized as a previous attendee won't be admitted.

ALSO NOTE: This show is strictly for attendees 14 and up. No children, please.
