Baby-faced London, Ont., magician Keith Brown wants to make your fringe experience a magical one, and his one-man, hour-long Exchange hits the mark. Featuring straight-up magic — with playing cards, cellphones and neckties — and an impressive use of a memory palace to memorize a deck of cards, Brown’s sweetness and talent charm the audience. And when he brings out some curious and pointy props for his finale, he brings the show home with stomach-churning impressiveness.

While audience participation is a requisite for the show, Brown handles it with such affability, even wallflowers won’t wither. His easy manner and delightful skills create an alchemic performance that’s no trick.

— Barb Stewart

 

From the Fringe program:

Join Keith in an exchange of mystery, wonder and imagination fused together in an intimate and interactive theatre setting. Interactive entertainment at its finest revolving around you, the audience.

"I have been doing this for 12 years because I love it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do." – Keith Brown
