LOS ANGELES: THE GEFFEN PLAYHOUSE

Want a sure bet for an evening of classy entertainment? Then put your money on Ricky Jay, Hollywood's favorite sleight-of-hand performer whose facility with a deck of cards (among other talents) offers consistent audience payoff in his latest one-man show at the Geffen Playhouse... Effortless stage presence and dazzling technique...

Audiences who know Jay primarily from his card routines may be pleased to learn that the performer is an equally gifted raconteur...His method of seduction is a combination of wit, class and strategic understatement. Being conned has seldom felt this enjoyable.

Los Angeles Times

CHICAGO: THE ROYAL GEORGE THEATRE

Ricky Jay is an astonishing magician -- a grand master of the art and craft required for the dramatic manipulation of things that appear to be in full sight. Yet sleight-of-hand is almost the least of the many extraordinary talents and enthusiasms of this actor, writer, historian and performance artist... [A] tremendously engaging, endlessly imaginative one-man show.

Can anyone truly tell reality from illusion? When we pride ourselves on our ability to distinguish real from fake, forgery from masterpiece, are we only engaging in self-deception?

Filmmaker Errol Morris and sleight-of-hand artist Ricky Jay, who have recently collaborated on
Morris's New York Times blog, consider these questions in a wide-ranging discussion of art
and perception, offering a thought-provoking evening that challenges what we think we know about
art and about ourselves.
