It should have been better organised, especially since it was a particularly pricy show.
Love and magic have a great deal in common. They enrich the soul, and they both take practice.

Too bad the event was poorly organized. That's one of the issues with close-up magic--it's hard for a lot of people to watch it at the same time unless you're set up with big video screens and, in Dynamo's case, two guys with handheld cameras following him.

Major muck-up by the organisers - at 150 ($275) a ticket the audience is going to be expecting an evenings entertainment and clearly Dynamo was only booked to do strolling/mingle stuff rather than being the feature entertainment. No matter what happened this event was doomed surely?
