Got to the Castle at 8:40 tonight, Wednesday night, and was turned away because the Castle was full. First time that's happened to me in 5-odd years of frequent visits.
I got to the Castle at 6:00 and the line of cars was down the street trying to get in. By 7:00 or so the parking lot was full and by 7:30 anyone without a dinner reservation was being turned away as the place was at it's limit. But what a night! I have to say that Jason's parlor act was on of the best acts I have seen. It was polished, funny and magical. Jason did a mentalism act, but the whole time he would tell the audience that he could not read minds, but that he had studied pattens in the way people make decisions. (as he told me before the show, is anyone going to believe that George Costanza could read anyone's mind?) After he finished, he took time to greet each person that came up to him. Most people had to wait up to 2+ hours in line to get in the show room, but it was worth it. Also my hat is off to the Staff of the castle, they were doing everything they could to make things go as smooth as possible. Extra staff on duty, extra magicians to entertain the folks waiting or those that couldn't get in. All that plus Doc Eason at the WC Fields Bar. A great night of magic
