Patterns: A Numbers & Symbols Show

Created by Gregg Tobo

Enter an improbable world of interlocking patterns where the secrets of the Universe are revealed in the musings of an obsessive mind. An unusual piece of interactive theater by magician Gregg Tobo, five-time winner of the Boulder Fringe “Encore Award.” A magic show that does not look like a magic show. A one-person performance in which the magician’s skill is not on display, but is used instead to create a world where numbers and symbols behave in strange and improbable ways. Find out if the Universe really reveals itself in the random patterns that surround us. Children are welcome, but this show (with its cerebral themes) is geared toward adults.

    I’ve seen several of Greg’s shows, and this is the best. The way its many seemingly unrelated and audience-generated elements come together in the end is truly elegant and baffling.

    What a wonderful show! I was mesmerized by the entire build …and while you asked us not to be amazed (and quite impressed) by your skills and performance, we couldn’t help ourselves!
