Westbury - On March 16, mentalist duo The Clairvoyants performed a mind-blowing show at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury on Long Island.
Thommy Ten and Amélie van Tass began their set with an interactive mentalist trick, where they were able to guess the cards that audience members selected. As they took the NYCB Theatre at Westbury stage, in the round, they greeted the crowd. "Hello, everyone," they said, and continued with yet another impressive card trick. "Welcome to The Clairvoyants," they said, prior to sharing that it was going to be a "special night" since they will get to know the audience better, and the fans will get to know them as well.
Their show was full of audience interaction, and they selected people on stage with them, who randomly caught giant beach balls, and they listed numbers on those balls, which in return, turned out to be the numbers that they previously selected on a lottery ticket. One of the most jaw-dropping magic tricks of the night involved Thommy and a puzzle, with a wooden frame, which left everybody in total awe.
Amélie described last year as an "incredible" experience for them since they were able to tour the United States, with The Illusionists, and they thanked the audience for voting them second place on the reality competition, America's Got Talent. She also went on to guess the correct number of jelly beans that an audience member picked in a jar, which turned out to be correct (56 jelly beans).
A fun moment was when they invited two young children on stage, Robby (age six) and Lauren, where Thommy performed a neat magic trick that involved a rope. As the night progressed, their mentalism routine only more remarkable and fascinating.
Towards the end of the show, Thommy went into the crowd, and made a blindfolded Amélie (who was seated on the stage) correctly guess various objects from audience members that would have otherwise been impossible to guess correctly (such as digits of a credit card, numbers on a law enforcement badge, number of cigarettes in a pack, and the actual brand of cigarettes, which in this instance, was Marlboro).
Fan and audience member, New York City schoolteacher Claudine Webb, raved, "The Clairvoyants were fabulous tonight at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury."
