The McKittrick Hotel (530 West 27th Street, NYC), home of Sleep No More, announced the return of internationally acclaimed illusionist Scott Silven’s At The Illusionist’s Table. Performances of the intimate experience, where mystical mentalism intertwines with fine dining, will be offered from September 14 through October 21, 2023.

Scott Silven returns for a record fifth engagement of At The Illusionist’s Table. During the performance, the enigmatic host and creator leads guests through an evening of culinary delights and heartwarming storytelling, interwoven with mind-bending feats of mentalism. Senses will appear to deceive as candles flicker, whisky pours, and conversation stirs over a meal filled with unbelievable illusions.

“It is a great privilege to return once again to my home away from home at The McKittrick Hotel. I’m delighted for New York audiences to join me for an extraordinary evening this fall,” said Silven.

In between residencies at The McKittrick, he has toured the world, performing at iconic venues from The Kennedy Center in Washington, DC to the Sydney Opera House in Australia.

At The Illusionist's Table debuted at the Edinburgh Performing Arts Festival in 2017, before making its New York premiere at The McKittrick Hotel later that year. After completing two sold-out residencies, Silven returned for additional runs in late 2022 and summer 2023.
