‘Amazing Great’ to perform
The Gallery in Stamford will host Brian Foley, “The Amazing Great,” today at 7 p.m. He will entertain with “feats of prodigious memory, unbelievably rapid mental calculations, mind reading, and of course, playing card artistry,” according to a media release, in a show that will include audience participation.
Attendees may arrive at The Gallery at 128 Main St. at 6 p.m. to tour the artwork on display. There will also be a potluck dinner where people are asked to bring a dish to share.
Foley has been performing magic for more than 30 years, and has presented his act on four continents. Having been based in Europe for 18 of those years, he’s worked for heads of state, corporations such as Coca-Cola, BMW, Delta Airlines, on cruise ships and trade shows. Part of his show consists of monologues about his experiences as a street performer.
Seating is limited. Cost for the show is $10. For more information, call 652-4030.
