The name Blake Vogt might not mean much to you but you may recognize the 29-year-old and his impressive magic tricks from shows such as “America’s Got Talent” and Penn & Teller’s “Fool Us.” When he’s not performing for the public eye, Vogt is working behind the scenes for fellow illusionists like David Blaine and consulting on movie sets for blockbuster hits such as “Now You See Me” (1 and 2) and Marvel’s “Ant-Man.”
Most recently, Vogt has been touring the country as part of his own “17 Choices” show—a live, interactive audience experience only at iPic. Starting October 19th, Vogt will be bringing his show to New Jersey at iPic Hudson Lights in Fort Lee for four nights only. “17 Choices” is iPic’s latest live stage experience which is part of the company’s new Night of Illusions showcase, including nationally-celebrated magicians, mentalists and illusionists including Truth Be Told with Oz Pearlman and Mind Control with Franco Pascali.
This will be Vogt’s second showcase on the iPic stage where he promises to delight the audience with masterful tricks and mind-blowing illusions. During “17 Choices,” select guests will be called upon to dictate various outcomes, making 17 choices leading up to the final trick.
“I am very proud of ’17 Choices’ at iPic and what it means to magic as a whole,” Vogt said. “The format of this performance was specifically designed for iPic’s theater stage and involves a lot of fun audience interaction that dictates the journey and outcome of every show, adding a new layer of challenges for me as the course of the show progresses. Each show is as unique as its audience, so it’s a refreshing approach that keeps everyone on their toes in excitement, including myself.”
