Seth Neustein - Magician and Mentalist - Secret Speakeasy - Qixi Festival - Chinese Valentine's Day - Double Seventh Festival Pittsburgh

On Wednesday, August 7th, 2019 at 7:00 PM Seth Neustein hosts the Secret Speakeasy® – Qixi Festival – Chinese Valentine’s Day – tickets are available here: Shhh.

We are proud to partner with She Deserves to bring awareness to help abused women to develop confidence and self-worth, so they can become independent, self-reliant, and take pride in developing their own security, with economic independence.

Star crossed lovers united …

Legend tells of a love story between the weaver girl, Zhinu (the star of Vega) and the cowherd, Niulang (the star of Altair). Their love was forbidden and they were banished to opposite sides of the Silver River (the Milky Way). Once a year, on the 7th day of the 7th lunar month, a flock of magpies forms a bridge to reunite these star crossed lovers for just one day…

On this day we celebrate the Qixi Festival, or the Double Seventh Festival: Chinese Valentine’s Day:

The evening will recreate a romantic Qixi Festival indoors – filled with close-up magic and readings, craft stations from renowned experts such as Chinese calligraphy and Chinese knot art, performances of silk and iron fan dance, performances from a world master of the pipa – the Chinese lute – who  performed with Yo Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble, immersive art installations, and more.

Bring your true love – or find your true love. You never know who you will meet in the Secret Speakeasy®…

Join Seth Neustein in collaboration with the Organization of Chinese Americans – OCA Pittsburgh this August 7th for a once in a lifetime Secret Speakeasy® – Qixi Festival. These epic theater and cultural events are made possible by you and quality sponsors: Calvin Sales, Financial Services Professional w/ New York Life Insurance Co, Women’s Small Business Association – WSBA, KGrandy Media Co.

Seth Neustein has hosted his exclusive Secret Speakeasy® experiences to sold out audiences across the US since 2016. Due to popular demand he is now bringing one of these unforgettable events to Pittsburgh.

Secret Speakeasy® is an exclusive one of a kind themed experience set in a secret venue in or near downtown Pittsburgh. Locations can be private lofts, high end lounge back rooms, private speakeasies…

Guests will be provided with instructions or cryptic clues to find the hidden location and the password for entry. You can’t enter the Secret Speakeasy® without the password – no exceptions!

Because people kept asking, we will spill one surprise early – yes, due to overwhelming demand, Seth Neustein will be performing his tour de force psychological illusion show designed specifically for just this intimate experience. The show will feature world premiere performances of brand new feel-good psychological mind reading pieces where you have the opportunity to be the star. You will determine the direction of the show, making it unique and unrepeatable – altering its course so that it is never the same way once. Seth will be your Virgil guiding you through a land of wonder – enabling you to read your friends’ minds, divine clandestine information, and see into the future. In the Secret Speakeasy® you will make the impossible possible.

While the Secret Speakeasy® shows are interactive, participation is not required for enjoyment. If you prefer to relax and just watch and enjoy the show your wishes will be honored.

Dress Code: Black tie optional – cocktail … or appropriate formal Qixi festival attire

Because a custom cocktail menu will be available, this Secret Speakeasy® is 21+
