Not only are there no plans to perform it in any other cities, but there are no plans to perform it EVER AGAIN. Period. It's a big pain in the neck to do and when the folks putting this on tell me that they're never going to do it again, I believe them. So, if you want to see it, this is your chance:
If anyone were to ask me to name the most mystifying experiences in my life pertaining to magic, near the top of the list, if not AT the top, would be when the Los Angeles Conference on Magical History rebuilt and performed the legendary Hooker Card Rise in 1993.
They're going to do it again.
This time, however, you dont need to be invited to that most exclusive of soirees in order to see it.
In addition to its performances for attendees of the Conference on November 10, the hosts will present showings of The Hooker Card Rise in advance of the Conference on the evenings of November 1, 2, and 3 at a secret location in Burbank, California.
The number of tickets is extremely limited (the small audiences duplicate the size of those who originally watched Hooker perform in his townhouse in Brooklyn). They cost $100 each and must be purchased and paid for in advance.
Mimicking the crafty Dr. Hooker, who thoroughly bamboozled those lucky enough to witness his Impossibilities by refusing to allow most of them to see it twice, those attending the conference will not be allowed to purchase a ticket for the earlier showings.
Having witnessed the Hooker Card Rise at the Conference when it was originally performed, I cant begin to put into words the wondrous nature of the illusions seen in that 18 minutes (which, on these special evenings, will be preceded by a talk from Jim Steinmeyer on its history). It was real magic, and then some. And for those of you not attending the Conference, this will be the best hundred bucks youll ever spend. Believe me--do it--you won't be sorry.
