The nomination ballots for the AMA awards have been sent to the members this week. In looking over it, I am a quite disappointed in the fact that Eugene Burger, Tina Lenert and Max Maven have only separate entries for the Stage Magician of the year award. There absolutely should have been an entry for the "Nocturnal Trio." This show was more than three individuals doing their acts. It was a piece of theater: a type of which is woefully under-represented in the art of magic and the Academy, whether through choice or oversight, have missed the opportunity to recognize this wonderful show.
