[The following guidelines have ended, as of March 7, 2022, now that NYC Mayor Eric Adams has removed the Key To NYC vaccination and masking requirements. We will keep the following guidelines on this blog, for historical reference only. Guests arriving to future Chamber Magic shows will not be required to present proof of vaccination, and masking will be optional.]
All audience members are required to present Proof of Vaccination. Means of proof include a Vaccination card, NYC COVID Safe passport app, or the NYS Excelsior Pass mobile app. Unvaccinated individuals with a negative Covid test result or having antibodies due to previous exposure to Covid-19 are not exempt.
All guests must agree to wear a face mask throughout the performance. Steve Cohen will be unmasked for the performance but has been fully vaccinated and undergoes a regular testing regimen.
All audience members are required to sanitize their hands using the hand sanitizer station located at the showroom door, prior to entry. A factory-sealed deck of playing cards is opened at each show.
An intimate setting has always been a hallmark of Chamber Magic. Audiences are limited to 56 tickets per show, in a ballroom that holds up to 200.
The Lotte New York Palace has collaborated with Dr. Robert Amler, a former Chief Medical Officer at the CDC on its COVID-19 safety plan. All showroom HVAC units have been replaced, and Merv 13 filters are installed to meet ASHRE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers) standards.
The late show now begins 30 minutes later than previous, to minimize audiences from interacting with each other. The new showtimes are 7:00PM and 9:30PM, every Friday and Saturday.
