In December of 1973, just after completing a year's study of magic under a grant from the Canada Arts Council, Doug Henning produced a full evening illusion show at the Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto. It was directed by Ivan Reitman who went on to become a well known Hollywood director of films such as Animal House. Doug was only 26 years old at the time.
Doug's show was called "Spellbound." At this time he was almost unknown to magicians, but was about to be catapulted to stardom when the Broadway Producers of "Grease" visited Toronto to see this show. They brought Doug to Broadway. They wrote a new book around Doug and his illusions and called it "The Magic Show."
What I have for sale are 7 copies of the Spellbound program from the Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto. Each one is a 20 page booklet printed on glossy stock. One of them is signed by Doug on the front cover.
I'm asking $75.00 each for the unsigned ones and $250.00 for the signed copy.
I doubt if many of these even exist any more. If so, it can't be many. I went up to Toronto to see the show as Doug's guest (staying at his apartment as well.) I picked up these copies at the theatre after the show. I put them aside until now. They are in excellent condition.
e-mail me if you have any interest:
