Tanya Solomon: Truth Assassin Magic Show

July 27, 8 p.m.

The Monocle | 4510 Manchester Avenue | St. Louis 917-442-9349


Tanya Solomon, one of stage magic's few female professionals, is making St. Louis one of the stops on the first national tour of her solo show "Tanya Solomon: Truth Assassin".

The show, which premiered at New York City's Voorhees Theater in 2016, is a one-woman show emphasizing magic as entertainment for intelligent adults. This hour of startling effects includes baffling sleight-of-hand, costumes changed in a flash, blindfold targeting with a knife, and live fish appearing from nowhere. Solomon creates comedy out of the interaction between the magician as self-proclaimed liar and the rational expectations of the audience. Logic and laws of nature guaranteed violated!
