New Theater Show "Radnevsky's Real Magic" In NYC

A very intriguing show will be coming to NYC for a run this October. The show is called Radnevsky's Real Magic and features the return of an enigmatic figure from the past. Anton Radnevsky vanished from the scene in New York several decades ago and this is being billed as his triumphant return. I he...

Todd Robbins Dark Deceptions and More

I want to let everyone know that I will be doing a couple of things that might interest you. If you missed my NY International Fringe Festival show, or want to see it again, or just want to pass the word along about it, then you should know that I have two performances of Dark Deceptions: The Seance...

I'm telling you right now, if Milt and AMA had just kept the Festalboard, none of this would have happened!

Re: Attention Magic Castle Members

It's funny that all this should be coming down right now as I am considering joining several clubs back here in NY. When I look around here and see what clubs cost and I reminded what an AMAZING bargain the Castle and the AMA is for it's members. The biggest trick that has been pulled of is keeping ...

Re: NY Magic Scene gets 3/4 pg in SunNYTimes

David Copperfield had no money invested in the ill-fated NY venue. He only licensed his name and had creative control over the place. A live magic venue in NY would be such a major undertaking. To do it and do it right would be so expensive and there are many reasons why it wouldn't work. It's not i...

Re: Blaine To Quit?

There are a number of inaccuracies in that article that I spotted, so how much more of it is just plain wrong? Pete's right. He's getting press. That's what this is all about.

Sorry, Steve, the dwarf is a guy. But he does look good in a dress, so let's talk about this.

Carnival Illusions

Admittedly, this is shameless self promotion, but if you enjoyed the excerpt from Al Stencills wonderful book on the sideshows, and would like to see a number of them performed live, then I have a suggestion for you. My show, Carnival Knowledge, just started previews off-Broadway in NY. In addition ...

Calling All Freaks!

We start previews of my show, Carnival Knowledge, on Thursday. On Wednesday, we are doing an open call audition for freaks, unusual performers or beautiful women willing to be hypnotized and turned into a gorilla. These will be for understudies for the show and for future companies of the production...

Andre Kole?

So I hear that Andre Cole displeased a number of people at a convention. Or perhaps it was Penn & Teller disguised as Andre? Details from those that were there would be appreciated.

Re: Coney Island Sideshow in trouble!

I want to thank everyone for the support we have received from the magic community to help keep us alive in Coney Island. I almost wrote "keeping us afloat" but floating is what we have been doing in rain drenched Coney Island. There are only three traditional sideshows left. There is our ...

Re: Children magic

Take a pair of pliers and bend some pennies. Switch a bent one for an unbent one and put it in the kid's hand. As you do this, tell the kid to close his hand fast and tight, and to squeeze with all of their might. When they open their hand they will squeal, thinking that they bent the penny. All the...

Magic Castle Junior Society

I must admit that this post is completely self serving, but it is a bit of history that has not been written. Back in the middle of the 1970s, the Academy of Magicial Arts decided to start up a Junior Society. One Spring Saturday afternoon, there was a public meeting to introduce this new level of m...

Re: Melvin Burkhart's Dice Routine

Matt, Thanks for the Ginzu knife. Though, I have been working for over a year now trying to get the thing to change colors. By the way, I sat down with Melvin at his home in Riverview, FL and video taped him doing all his stuff and the explanation to it all. I also took a number of photos of his han...

Re: Melvin Burkhart's Dice Routine

Asrah, you are right about Melvin being on the Strates show. He started working for Slim Kelly in 1955 and continued with that show for thirty years. The amazing thing was that he never missed a single performance in all that time! I have a lovely transcript of Melvin working on the Strates show in ...

Re: Name for a Magic bar?

Okay, this is really cheesy, but what about the Hocus Pocus Pub. If you are really going for the shabby/chic feel this works as it sounds like a place that has been around for a gazillion years. If that doesn't please you, name it the Chat Room. That seemed to work for AOL.
