"MAGIC: Past & Present" by Jeffrey day
Jean Eugene Robert-Houdin (1805 - 1871), is known as, "The Father of Modern Magic". I wonder what he would have thought of magic with iPhones and Rubik's Cubes? In this exciting new show that I am presenting, you will be taken down the path of how the early conjurors have successfully influenced the modern magicians of today. The similarities may not be obvious, but they are definitely evident. You will learn how the great Max Malini of the early 1900’s was influenced by Issac Fawkes of the early 1700’s with a very similar trick that became a blockbuster to this very day. Not many people know this, but Harry Houdini was not the first escape artist to free himself from handcuffs. But Houdini knew how to market himself and make the genre of escapology a real attraction.
Come see this show and make the connection of the magic of the PAST, to the magic of the PRESENT. This is the very same magic that we see today on television, but with a twist. You will learn how MAGIC from the Past has evolved to the MAGIC of the PRESENT - and possibly to the FUTURE!
Performance will be in the VICTORIAN CARRIAGE HOUSE!
