Steve Cohen Remembers

IMG_9355

Steve Cohen of  “Chamber Magic” at “The Lotte New York Palace” reached out to me recently with his fond remembrance of the profound impact Doug had on him at a young age. Take it away Steve!

“Hi Neil,

I was going through some old files and found an autographed Doug Henning photo from the early 1980s. I was highly inspired by Doug Henning when I started in magic, and at age 11 I wrote to him for an autograph. He sent me this signed tiger photo (personally inscribed to me, which was mind blowing as a boy!) and a few others that I cannot locate.

My parents took me to see Merlin (Mark Hellinger Theater) on February 23, 1983, and Doug Henning’s World of Magic (Lunt-Fontanne Theatre) on December 22, 1984. I will always remember, in Merlin, seeing the Mascot Moth in person. It was as magical an effect as you could ever imagine. Like true wizardry.

Thanks Steve for sharing such a wonderful picture, and reminding us how cheap Broadway ticket prices used to be!
