At the risk of starting a war, and far be it for me to critize a working professional magician I would like some coments on the following story. My wife and I were on vacation someplace, although we did not see magic in a working venue we did get to see one performing in a mall promoting his hotel show. As they were setting up the props we were wondering the mall, and went behind the stage and above it onto the second floor. One illusion was open and visable to the audence who would be on the second floor. I said to my wife that a person would be able to see the working seceret, and how the person would vanish, and said "he's not going to perform it that way is he". Sure enough that's what he did, and when the effect was taking place I watched the audence who were on the second floor. They all pointed toward the illusion at that moment. It surprised me that he would perform that way. Also he goofed on another trick. Am I overreacting or should I not care. Coments please and if Richard wishes to pull this thats fine with me, I dont know, I was disapointed with this, otherwise he put on a good show.
