Hang on a sec. He was using mains power? Or every single battery he had failed? I assume the former. I don't know much about electronic magic but I can't remember seeing something that needed mains to work...
Who was the performer?
Any idea what these mains powered props were going to do for 45 minutes?
Also how did anyone see if all the lights were out?
