Re: The Heck with Reviews....

The drawing room conjurer's would do an effect and then retire to allow the audience to discuss how it might be done. Obviously, that is not workable today either. It's ABSOLUTELY workable today.

Re: The Illusionists Reviews

Both v1 and v2 are fun shows filled with astonishing talent bu...

Re: Live magic is on the rise ... the Supernaturalists

Hi Banachek! First of all, good luck with the show. You'll enjoy working with Cosentino, he's a great guy. I think the main reason that THE SUPERNATURALISTS is getting criticised even before it has set foot on stage is the fact that Criss Angel has, in the past, been so quick to accuse others of ste...

Re: Geller stoops to a new low

Re: Geller stoops to a new low
