November 2, 2013, we will be presenting the first official showing of our Steampunk Illusionist Act. I
say act, because we are only doing a short segment as part of the First Annual Houdini Festival in Danville VA. We have three things (maybe 4) in store for the show. One is an escape, the other two are routines we used to do but are being brought back.
One of the routines was the creation of famed director Orson Welles, who was also an avid magician. His creation was later presented by Doug Henning and we presented in our show a few years back for a time. But now, we have revamped it and made it even better. The routine now has a time travel/teleportation element to the routine which makes it VERY steampunk.
Because this is the Houdini Festival, we will also be presenting one escape in the show.
Interestingly, during the day, I will be presenting a lecture on Escapes for the magicians who come to the Festival. I'm quite excited by this because these days there aren't many folks teaching this stuff. The Houdini Festival is being put on by magician Wayne Alan who owns the The North Theatre in Danville, VA. http://thenorththeatre.com/
