Aaron’s mastery in mind control, hypnosis & psychology, combined with his background as a doctor makes this show a fast paced, edge of your seat experience.

Broadway Baby Aaron Calvert: AWAKEN Review

“Moments that made me gasp I’m still thinking about now.”

★★★★

Broadway Baby

Suave, debonair and immaculately presented, Aaron Calvert has the audience entranced from the opening seconds of his new show, Awaken. Calvert’s blend of magic and hypnosis contains moments that made me gasp, and it certainly has that most important mark of a good performance – I am still thinking about it.

The acts themselves defy explanation and to describe them here would be to ruin the show for anyone who wants to see it. Suffice to say, expect plenty of audience interaction and a full, dazzling hour. All I will say is that the methods he used to select audience members to be a part of his act were such that any doubts about planted stooges I may have initially had were soon dismissed.
