I've decided to put together the world's most expensive close-up act.
Here's a rough outline of the act:
Opening effect - Dean Dill's "Explosion" (Silver Dollar verison). Retail price - $USD 1800.00
Middle effect - "Akana". Check URL (www.stevensmagic.com/summertext/Akana.asp
) for a description. Retail price - $USD 1950.00
Closing effect - "Nova" - available from Collector's Workshop. Retail price (from CW pricelist effective August 1996) - $USD 25000.00
I think I'll leave the price tags on the props. This will impress the hell out of most members of the audience. Unless of course I'm performing for the Sultan of Brunei.
