It's fair to ask if the same is happening with illusionists: If the end of an era is coming for a familiar type of magic show; the ones with big cabinets, leggy dancers and maybe even a sequined jacket with epaulets ..." ... 50229.html

The trend is definitely changing, but mainly because magicians are failing to see changing trends and change with them. There is a reason why Cirque has taken over the strip and any magician who fails to see the reason will continue with the status quo and in the end, vanish him/herself.
