Re: The Manipulation Game

I think it's a typo - it's on the Science Channel. Looks like a re-packaging of one of his series from the UK - 'The Experiments'

I've seen reference on the forum a couple of times to J.J. Abrams and his interest in magic and to the 'Mystery Box' he bought from Tannens.

I think Copperfiled has several destinations that he uses for this illusion. The night I saw his show it was Phuket.

Re: Chamber Magic in San Francisco

Hi Steve,

I attended the SF show back in June and thought it was great. Is the content of the show for the new dates the same or will there be any changes?

Thanks,
