I had the pleasure yesterday of seeing Nathan Coe Marsh, a fellow Genii Forum member, in performance at the Suncoast Theater theater in New Port Richey Florida. The theater itself is quite oldbuilt probably in the 20s, but beautifully restored and maintained.
I recall he opened with a Billiard Ball manipulative routine which was very well received. There were very audible gasps as the ball appeared on his out-stretched hand. Very nicely done.
He did a nice mindreading bit using a large deck of cards and got some laughs out of his effort in duct taping his eyes shut. I think there could have been one more laugh in this routine.
Did a nice version of coin in the bottle with the spectator holding the bottle.
Must say here that he used of lot of folks from the audience which worked very well.
I had read some of the Forum notes on his Apples and Oranges performance. I didnt read those notes (until today) and I was looking forward to seeing the routine. I wont describe the routine here, but will say only I thought it was impressive. The audience and I were fooled and more importantly entertained!! Great job. Someday maybe Ill figure it out.
His presentation of the Egg Bag, one of my favorite effects, was beautiful. Standard moves with the bag and very well done. Audience reaction was great.
There could have been more bits, but if I recall correctly, he closed with the bill in the lemon. Very nice job with it.
If you get a chance, see Nathan Coe Marsh..youll enjoy the show.
