Magic for the Head and the Heart

"You don't have to be smart to enjoy this show, but you're gonna feel smart by the time it's over."

"This was life-altering. Forget everything you think you know about 'magic shows.'"

—— John D.

"If universities were like this, everyone would have a Ph.D."



—— Richard L.

Wonder 101: A Thinking Man's Theater is an evening of magic, music, and meaning created exclusively for curious, philosophically-minded adults.

 Jintri is unlike any other magician you have seen or heard of, because he does not present illusions merely as tricks or puzzles. His primary aim is enlightenment — not deception.


Nikolas Jintri is an illusionist, mentalist, and musician who believes that the good life begins with asking big questions.

The minor mysteries he shares on stage are an invitation into the genuine miracle of your own heart and mind.  For Jintri, stage magic has the power to remind us of our true inheritence as free beings. The secrets are secondary.

A returned Peace Corps volunteer (Ghana '04-'06) with a background in philosophy, Jintri is a lifelong wisdom-seeker who has taught  rhetoric and critical thinking at Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Pittsburgh, and Temple University.
