Uniquely talented as an author, actor, historian and film consultant, Jay has long been considered one of the world's great sleight of hand artists. Directed by David Mamet the award winning Ricky Jay & his 52 Assistants offers a fascinating blend of card artistry and verbal chicanery. The New York Times wrote: "He's is a master's master. Is this theater? You bet it is. You aren't asked to suspend disbelief - you have no choice." Ricky Jay & his 52 Assistants set the record as the fastest sellout in off-Broadway history.
