Just wanted to mention something about Eric DeCamps' show Pure Magic
I missed the first 2 runs of the show and was when I heard that Eric was doing another run, I was sure that I wasn't going to miss it again.
For starters, I travelled from Boston to NYC just to see the show, and saying it was absolutely worth it would be a understatement. Growing up, Eric was one of my magical heroes, but I had never seen him work until now. Being that I held him in such high regard, my expectations for my first experience were naturally high as well (as many can relate.) I was absolutely blown away by the whole experience.
The show was beautiful, exactly what I envisioned a cabaret show to be like. To me, it was what a cabaret show should be like. The material was amazing, both entertaining and magical (not an easy combination to come by.) My only complaint was that at the end of the show, I didn't want it to be over (but then again, leaving the audience wanting more is a great way to end.)
I wish there would be more shows like this, or that I lived closer to NYC so that I could go back. Seeing a show like this makes me happy to be a magician, and reinforces why I love magic so much. I strongly urge anyone who is in/around NYC to go to the show. It will be a wonderful experience, as it was for me.
