Re: Broken Wand :: Mark Nelson

Many years ago, my wife and I moved into a tiny little apartment in Glendale, with T.C. Tahoe and Lesley on the top floor above us, and with Mark's door right next to ours on the bottom porch. Even though we knew each other before then, this was really the real beginning of a long lasting friendship...

Re: Wally Boag: 1920 - 2011

Growing up in this 'biz' I was drawn to those solo acts who just 'owned' the stage. Wally was certainly among them. I watched him as much as I could, because for me it was all about the timing, the beats within a joke or phrase - and learning to 'read' the audience continuously as you performed. Wal...

Re: So...what is a magician?

I feel in some ways the answer is simpler than we think it is, because we could ask the same question of other types of artists. For instance, when do you call a dancer a dancer? When they've studied the craft and are fully dedicated to the pursuit and performance of it. Fully understanding the tech...

Re: Breaking the Magician’s Code

That's exactly my point. I wonder out loud how Valentino justifies what he is doing. Is it the "Since I'm not performing anymore, why not?" attitude? Or the "No one has done this before, and since someone out there is bound to do it at some point, why shouldn't I cash in on it?" ...

Re: Breaking the Magician’s Code

It's a shame that people like Valentino enjoy tearing down instead of building up. Not only is there zero respect for some of the secrets of magic, there is also ZERO respect to regard it as an artform. Every description on the show is done with total disdain, as if magicians are "ripping off&q...

Although it's mentioned in one of the articles that Cirque is "stuck" with Criss, in that they can't get rid of him during the run, I really think that's highly unlikely. Criss isn't the one investing the supposed $100 Million in the production and you don't simply throw a $100 million at ...
