In this post-Blaine age, making a quarter disappear and guessing people's cards just seems pedestrian. The bar has been levitated, and now, you pretty much have to submerge yourself in a 2,000-gallon tank of water to get any attention. Magician John Gabriel does just that in the trick he calls "Water Tight," and it's this life-or-death energy that his show, Magic Redefined , thrives on. His fan base considers him one of the bravest contemporary magicians; this courage, coupled with his use of music and dramatic choreography, makes for a sensational spectacle. If you are lucky, he might just ask for your assistance during the show, but make sure you leave sporting the same torso you walked in with.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 5 p.m. Starts: March 7. Continues through March 30, 2008
