I'm not one to be a boastful type but just wanted to let you know that I'm very proud of the fact that my Off-Broadway show Strange and Unusual Hobbies at the SoHo Playhouse here in NYC has just had its one-year anniversary and still has an open-ended run. I'm very pleased with the show and, if you are in NYC or visiting, you can e-mail me for special ticket deals for magical visitors. You can see the poster etc on my site (simonlovell.com) or at the theater site (sohoplayhouse.com). It was described by the NY Daily News as, "Mindblowing" and by the Wall St. Journal as, "A dazzling 70 minute show!" During the month of Feb we'll also have a very special warm-up act for the show ... Emmy award winning writer Ted Greenburg will strut his funky stuff before my main set.

OK, going to take my medication now to get my feet back on the ground where they belong!

Plenty of reason to boast Simon. Ahhh...an enviable achievement and wish you ongoing success.

And hear I thought, because of topic title, I'd be able to boast about my own strange and unusual hobbies.

Thanks Randy,

Though now you have me a little worried about those hobbies of yours! LOL

Simon:
Is it true that you will be presenting your show, "Strange and Unusual Hobbies" at the Mystery Lounge in Cambridge Massachusetts on February 7th? If it is, it seems like a great opportunity for those in the New England area, who do not make it to New York, to come see this fantastic show.

Tony,

That's correct. Actually because of the different conditions and time constraints some pieces have to be changed and/or eliminated but very few. The show is 90% of the NYC one. If you make it be sure to come and say hello!

Hi Simon,

Like Randy I had a list ready to post of my unusual hobbies...ah well maybe next time! Like yourself, keeping dead stuffed crows isn't one of them. :O)

It's great to hear that your show is a running success! Best wishes!

Chrystal,

Sidney the semi-psychic water dowsing crow is still on my bookshelf wearing his sunglasses!

Thanks for the kind thoughts on the show!

I just got back from NYC and had a chance to check out Simon's show. Excellent! I recommend it to anyone. I was not aware of the discount from Simon, but it was STILL worth the modest price of $30. And yes, Ted Greenburg was HILARIOUS too! I didn't get a chance to speak with you at any length after the show, but regardless, thanks for a great evening of magic, Simon!

Simon,

Well hello, and well done! Maybe someday I can get to NY and see your show again.

Dennis

PS.. If you forgot, we had a few in the Poconos!

Dear Adam,

Glad you enjoyed the show ... come again anytime at a discount price next time!

Dennis be great to see you there too to sink a few more!

Ted Greenburg has now been extended through March and we love having him on the show. His style is totally eccentric and his observations brillianty witty!

I saw Simon in Cambridge last October or November. My friends and I greatly enjoyed the show! Check it out when you're in NY!

Belated congratulations Maestro Lovell! It's great to see that a transplanted lemming (yes, I have read some of your material) is doing so well on these shores!

With luck, I'll be out your way later this year and will be able to see the production. It's on my "must see" list.

When you are in New York over a weekend, Simon's show is a MUST SEE. Run, don’t walk. Five stars and an extra. All thumbs up. Very highly recommended.

If you want to be bored by mediocre hyper cool magician's that watch to much TV, don't know a Faro from a longitudinal shift and use fancy cards they bought online ... go see another show.

If you have a sense for hilarious British humor, impeccable comedy timing, wonderful strange stories, breathtaking sleight-of-hand ... and mouth (!), and want to spend an evening with one of the best card experts in the world, you have to see Simon's show at New York's SoHo Playhouse. Bring your friend's and enjoy one of the most entertaining shows you will see in a long time.

And make sure you talk to Simon after the show. He is one of the nicest guys to hang out with and he will kill you with his amazing seconds, thirds, bottoms, centers ... card sharks beware!

For more information go to: http://www.sohoplayhouse.com/simonlovell.htm

[Okay, yes, I admit, I am a friend of Simon. But he did not pay me to say this and I would think exactly the same about this show without knowing him. Hell, I would want to become his friend after seeing it.]

Thanks Thorsten,

I'll be sure to bring in one of the new posters for my show to the Fantasma magical experience during the week!

NYC certainly is a very magical place right now!

Always a pleasure, Simon.

See you tomorrow at Monday Night Magic.

Can't wait to see you there on stage again.
