Re: Criss Angel Believe Buzz

My initial reaction to the "world premiere" tonight of Believe was that it was not worth the price of my admission, which was free. I sat in the best seats with about 30 other journalists for the "official" press night and everyone I spoke with had the same reaction - really awfu...

Re: Criss Angel Believe Buzz

Tomorrow night is the official press night for Believe and the Luxor is holding a press conference Halloween morning for reporters. There should be lots of interesting questions from reporters on Friday due to the show's poor reviews so far. Hopefully, tomorrow night's show will be better then the r...

The press nights for Believe have been changed numerous times and we have been assured that Oct. 30 is now set as the official press night. Journalists, including myself, have been provided press seats for Oct. 30, before the grand opening on Halloween. The Cirque pr folks told press that they are &...

Re: Angel's Believe Delayed Until Oct 2008

The latest on this is that they moved the press night to October 6 and the official premiere to October 10. I am covering this for the LA Times and so far the dates have been moved three times. I am planning on going to the Oct. 6 press night and party.

Re: Who is the greatest today

I was out to dinner a while ago in London with Lennart Green, Guy Hollingworth, and Mr. Brown. I was lucky enough to get a private performance from all three during after dinner drinks.

Re: Who is the greatest today

Derren Brown is the best that I have seen. Though he doesn't perform card magic for the general public anymore, he is also one of the best card magicians I have ever seen.

Re: The Magic Castle Is Broke

I agree with Brian. Many people outside of members want to know what is going on with the Castle and not providing answers where they are accessible to everyone is bad pr for the Castle.

But, to respect the prior request, I have posted my comments on the magic castle forum.

Re: Greatest lineup ever appears on TV

This special is great! Some friends from Japan sent it to me and I viewed it among Japanese friends living here last weekend. A bit long, but lots of great magic and really interesting to see what gets a reaction and what generates silence from the celebrities and the audience.
