Re: Respect for Doug Henning

Lets not forget Blackstone Jr. And his full scale full evening magic show. And Mark Wilson's Magic Circus TV Specials. Along with guest appearances that he did in the 50's 60's and 70's. If people here want to attribute a second golden age of magic to Doug Henning I don't think that magic has had a ...

Re: Tom Stone's Definition of Magic

In my opinion Magic as a craft and perhaps as a performing art is unexplained science plus theater.

My dad the late Billy Bishop used to say Magic was "Grown up show and tell".
