As seen on NBC's TODAY with David Copperfield, as the hands of Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the film Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and as America's 'magician in disguise' on Candid Camera, Houston magician Ben Jackson is bringing his intimate show, "Magic, Music, & Mayhem" to La Colombe d'Or, one of the world's smallest luxury hotels nestled in the heart of Houston's Museum District.

This 90 minute theatrical experience allows guests to witness magic up-close and personal. Flashy props and leather pants have been replaced with quick wit and digital dexterity. Ben's fresh and creative approach has garnered international recognition amongst his peers and repeat performances from business moguls, socialites, and discerning clientele around the country. 

Relax in La Colombe d'Or's Art Gallery, sip on your elixir of choice, and witness an evening of elegant deceptions as performed by your host, Ben Jackson. Seating is limited.

The age minimum for this performance is 12 years old. No children, please.

Dressed nattily in a dark suit, Jackson works the rudiments of his craft in the old school manner.
