I wanted to let everyone know how I spent last evening in Los Angeles. I went “to the theater”. The performance was, “Max Maven—Thinking in Person.” The subtitle was, ”An Evening of Knowing and Not Knowing”. I had a great time!
Max Maven, whom we all admire and respect, gave a grand performance. The show, written by Max Maven and directed by Amit Itelman, is filled with strange quotes from some very obscure and eclectic people. Their words made me ponder and Max’s performance brought them into focus as he read the minds of the audience. Max’s character is highly educated, urbane, subtly sarcastic, compelling, humorous, and thoroughly entertaining. I won’t review the tricks or routines, but I will say there were many, “Wait a minute!” statements from the audience as well as from Max Maven.
For those living near the Los Angeles area, you have until May 28 to participate in this experience. If you access www.maxmaven.com, you will find all the information about Max’s Friday and Saturday shows at the Steve Allen Theater in Hollywood. I highly recommend that make an evening of it. After the show, there will be things you don’t know, but you will also know that Max Maven provided a nice evening of entertainment worthy of your time.
