Magic for the city that has seen it all.

Most people deem New York City the center of the universe, and The Big Apple likes it that way. For the city boasting the planet’s best museums, sports venues, theaters, restaurants, and concerts, magic has to be pretty special to hold anyone’s attention.

That’s my job.

Brilliant. F***ing brilliant.
— Paul Haggis, Academy Award Winning Screenwriter and Director
His close-up magic is astounding, and creates a memorable experience for your guests. I believe that Mark’s rate is very reasonable, considering how much value he can add to an event, and would strongly encourage you to consider him for your next party.
— Julie Chen, Activities Manager, The Yale Club NYC
Working with Mark was great as he was able to develop a new concept for an artwork which I would have not been able to embark on before.
— Yinka Shonibare, MBE, RA
Mark Philip Lichtenstein completely rocks.
— Kylie Edmond, Rock & Rawhide
Mark Lichtenstein performed at our wedding in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Several months later our friends still get excited talking about his magic. Many wedding guests commented in their thank you letters that they were blown away by his memorable metal bending and mind reading. We found Mark professional and charming, and would recommend him to anyone. He would certainly be a highlight of any party where he performs.
— Brian M. Fenty, Executive Chairman, Todaytix.com
We’re still scratching our heads as to how he seemed to defy the laws of nature right in front of us. Having a magician is a really great talking point at a party, creating a lasting memory. Mark is a great guy and we certainly look forward to our next opportunity to see him in action.
— Mrs. Judy Hamilton & Mr. Douglas A. P. Hamilton, Managing Partner, Hamilton Investment Partners


About Me


My name is Mark Philip Lichtenstein.

I’m a second generation magician. My father performed magic for me from the time I was very little, and introduced me to the community of magicians, who have been very generous with me.

I was taught that magic is a gift we give our audiences. Of course, some gifts are more useful than others. As a result, much of my philosophy around magic is how it can be used to specific ends, like helping a host manage a party, or creating illusions for my consulting clients that are practical, effective, and unique.

Though I am based in New York, I spend a significant amount of time in the UK. When there, I can be found at The Magic Circle, the most exclusive magic society in the world, of which I am a member.
