Sharing Wonder 2019

Today, we are delighted to release the next category for the Allan Slaight Awards, Sharing Wonder—recognizing an outstanding magic performance by an exceptional artist. Like the other awards, the recipient receives an engraved iPad to commemorate the occasion, and this category comes with a prize of $15,000, all generously provided by the Slaight Family Foundation.

Past recipients of this award include Penn & Teller, Darcy Oake, Derek DelGaudio and Michael Carbonaro. We are thrilled to add STEVE COHEN to this list of wonder workers.

Learn more from the video above, about this native New Yorker who has spent over two decades creating miraculous moments for over half a million guests, first at the historic Waldorf Astoria, and now at the Lotte New York Palace in New York.

MORE TO COME

On Friday, to round off our week of celebrating magic, we will name the individual recognized for a lifetime of exceptional contributions and dedication to the art of magic. Can you guess who it will be? All will be revealed tomorrow!
