About this Event
Two demographically diverse, snarky sleight-of-hand experts battle live and onstage, for the title of DC’s Best Magician in The Magic Duel. This show is full of seriously funny magic that will fool you. Badly. Audience members choose the magical challenges for the contest and then vote electronically to determine the winner of the coveted 'Golden Wand.' This 5-star rated show (Yelp, TripAdvisor) has run continuously at the beautiful and historic Mayflower Hotel since 2016. Suggested dress is: Cocktail Attire.

Are there public safety requirements due to the Covid-19 pandemic?
As of April 1, 2022, The DC Mayor's Office, The Mayflower Hotel, and DC Theater community have no specific safety mandates or requirements. We are committed to the safety and health of our staff and audiences and will adopt future mandates and requirements should they arise.
Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
The comedy in The Magic Duel has a topical and political slant which makes it great for adults and uninteresting to most people under 18 years old. To maintain the atmosphere of The Mayflower and the show, we suggest an upscale dress code and that no one under 15 years old attends.
What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
The best option is the Farragut North Metro station, one block south of the hotel. Metered street parking is very limited, but the best choice is the PMI Parking Garage at 1725 Desales St. NW. across Desales from the hotel. You can usually get a discount there using the SpotHero app.
