On Tuesday, May 8 at 7 p.m., Midwest Magic is proud to present still another Chicagoland exclusive

Barrie Richardson

--Magic and Mentalism Lecture

Barrie Richardson is author of three highly acclaimed books on magic and mentalism: Theater of the Mind; Act II--Theater of the Mind; and A Boon for All Seasons. He has won the creativity citation from the P.E.A. and is a member of the Inner Circle of The Magic Circle in London. His two parades in The Linking Ring won the Best Parade of the Year Awards. He has performed at conventions and banquets for professional societies around the country for over 30 years where he earned a reputation for using magic and metaphors to present powerful and practical management ideas. He has lectured in the United Kingdom, Italy, Argentina, and Canada as well as at many magic conventions and magical societies in the United States. He currently writes articles for MUM and for The Magician (formerly Club 71).

Barrie will present at least twelve tricks and routines. There will be close-up and platform effects. Most of the presentations require few props, and in most cases, he uses subtleties and misdirection rather than difficult sleights. The lecture is interactive.

Representative effects: Water Glass Production, Impromptu Card at Any Number, Word Flight, Rising Cards, Dollar Divination, Optical Brainwave, Water Glass Suspension, Giant Pairs Repaired, Impossible Knot Routine, Rice Jar Test, Quartet Memorized Deck Routine, Spooky Key Routine, Telephone Number Prediction, Bill in Lemon Routine, Impossible Card Location, Solid Ghost Impromptu Routine, and Airplane Cards.
