THE GENTLEMAN CHEATER MAGIC SHOW Critics & Reviews
Christian Gambin’s ‘The Gentlemen Cheater’
‘The Gentlemen Cheater’ is a one man show in every sense of the word; from greeting the public at the door to cueing his own music - proving to be the most difficult task of the evening. French magician and singer (something that will hopefully be brought into the act), Christian Gambin, frequents our capital to perform his close up magic to as few people as possible. This show comes from love; using the money from the big gigs and private events to conduct the most intimate experience – something he really wants to do.
With the initials of the show’s title being the exact mirror opposite to his own, that is exactly how the show is presented; with his audience sitting on the reverse side of the table whilst being on the complete other end of the spectrum in a mock card game against us. The idea of taking place around a poker table with more than a single group sitting per evening would work even better.
After a slick opening routine, it’s hard to keep track of all the following tricks that are thrown in; giving no time to be amazed before the next illusion is already underway. By the end, you find yourself forgetting the show’s narrative, and it feels like you’re just watching your mate showing you some slight of hand, as he’s gotten to know everyone in the room, comfortable enough to be thinking allowed.
With UK magicians worried they’ll have their toes stood on, Christian Gambin comes from Paris to London on the last Friday of every month to perform 'The Gentleman Cheater’ to a limited few at The Courthouse hotel, next to the Palladium at 7:30pm. The hotel itself doesn’t help promote the event, and with its extortionate hire coats, you should keep up to date with http://www.magicentertainmentlondon.co.uk in case a more suitable venue is found for the following dates:
Please see below the seating plan for The Nadler Soho Hotel showing THE GENTLEMAN CHEATER MAGIC SHOW. For ease of viewing we have implemented a magnified view of the seating area. All you need to do is just scroll the mouse over the seating plan.
Please see below a quick guide to specific seating areas of the theatre. Please note that this is a general guide and each theatre would not necessarily have all the areas described below:
Stalls or Orchestra Stalls: On level and closest to the stage. Stalls are generally the most expensive seats providing the best views of the stage. Stalls seats are slightly raised as they go back, although this might vary from theatre to theatre.
Royal Circle/Grand Circle/Dress Circle/1st floor: Each theatre names the1st floor or 1st Balcony differently, but we have tried to name the most common terms used in the West End. These are again very good seats and the prices are same like Stalls. Some people prefer to sit on this part of the theatre to get a sense of the bigger picture and to be able to appreciate the changing set, sceneries and stage effects better. We recommend this seating area for people going with Children and also if you are short in height.
Upper Circle/Grand Circle/2nd floor: Normally called the Upper Circle in most theatres, but some venues have named the Upper Circle as Grand Circle, so best to check on the seating plan of each venue to see exactly what they are called. These are cheaper seats than the Stalls or Royal Circle but still provide a clear view of the stage. Bargain hunters or people on a budget may book these as they are really good value for money.
Balcony/Top Floor: Balcony is the top floor of the theatre and the furthest away from the stage. Normally, the cheapest seats in the theatre, however, most balcony seats still provide a clear view albeit they are high up and a bit far from the stage. Enjoy the perfect West End experience without having to dig deep in your pocket!
