Four-Handed Illusions

An Intimate Evening of Laughs and Wonder


Illusionists Joel Acevedo and Steve Kradolfer join their talents in a performance that is engaging, hilarious, and mystifying. As one of only 50 guests, you will experience the magic just a few feet from your eyes. Add the sophisticated elegance of Boston’s Hampshire House and the result is a uniquely entertaining experience you'll remember for a long time.


The event starts 30 mins before showtime with a pre-show reception in the Hampshire House's Baker Bar, where you'll find a vast selection of cocktails and beverages available for purchase. At show time, guests enter the Library where they will witness surreal situations come to life. Common objects will appear, vanish, teleport to impossible locations, and move across the room in inexplicable ways. You will also experience the wonders of the human mind through masterful demonstrations of telepathy, precognition, and mind reading.


Join us and see why Four-Handed Illusions is one of Boston's highest rated shows!

The show runs without interruption from January  through November.
