A Little History
It is hard to pinpoint when the first conjurers and magicians began to make a trade out of illusion and disbelief. Some references are made on Egyptian papyrus about unbelievable feats. It is certain that the ancient Romans performed the timeless trick of Cups and Balls, but after that magic fell into disrepute. It was considered witchcraft and who wanted to be burned at the stake? By the 1500s books started to appear on the subject, revealing conjuring secrets, but it is not until the 18th century that our modern idea of the magic show starts to be enjoyed. Magicians began to make a name for themselves, the most well known of course being Harry Houdini, whose specialty was as an escapologist. Since then magic has been getting bigger, better and more exciting with fans of this artform coming from around the globe.
What Other's Are Saying!
My family and I went to this show and highly recommend it. It is certainly worth the price. We laughed so much. We sat in the second row but still could not figure out the illusions and the "secrets".
We had a wonderful time, we're still smiling from your magic. We will certainly tell our "Desert Rat" friends about your show and hope we can catch you at the Biltmore sometime.
