As early as the age of eight years old, I became aware of magic. I could not believe that anyone could acquire this gift simply by reading a book or talking to someone who was a magician. It's more than just a skill. It has taken me over 45 years to get to this level of awareness where I can share what I've learned.
About 10 years ago I discovered some hidden magic that was buried in books and manuscripts from the 19th century. These magical effects haven't been seen in a hundred years. So I started working on them and have developed a show that is based on these beautiful, yet baffling, effects created by conjurers from the Victorian period. Some of these effects deal with sleight-of-hand magic, and some are based on "spiritualism" or "mesmerism" of that era, that is now called "mentalism". It's something that most people, even magicians, haven't witnessed ... until now.
Here are some things that I would like to know before the show date.
Size and age of the audience
If the show will be inside or outside
Size of the room (i.e. length/width, height of ceiling)
Will there be a PA system already there
