Re: Magicians Week on Letterman

Lance Burton was absolutely great last night on Letterman. His performance of his "Backstage" illusion was terrific. In his opening remarks he was relaxed and funny, as he is when you see him live. The audience responded fantastically, and even Letterman was effusive. It took me back to th...
