The September 2010 feature article arrived just in time to alert me to this wonderful show which played in Austin this past weekend. I took in the Saturday morning performance. Before the show there is an hour-long period in which you can go to the floor and enjoy some juggling, magic, costumes, etc. Alex was there and after his bit I approached him with my Genii magazine. He was stunned as he hadn't seen it yet. We chatted over the Bay Area magic scene (I'd lived there until my early 20s) and he talked a lot about life under the big top and what a good time he was having. He was charming, polite, and enthusiastic. He is the star of the show, despite it's size and complexity. The show is well worth a visit if it comes to town. I enjoyed it immensely and thank Richard for selecting a great cover story and Jim Steinmeyer for crafting such a good read.
