From the Magic Capital of the WorldAugust 8 | Posted by Greg Bordner | Featured Columns
Magic Week is so hard to describe if you’ve never been here. There was magic in the streets, in bars, restaurants and on stage. Those who came were from complete novices to famous magicians. Kevin James just walked in unannounced. Franz Harary lectured at the last minute. Shows, lectures, demonstrations, Ladies Event, Vent-o-Rama, Close Up shows and friends. So many directions to go all at once.
Just keep focused on the shows going on on time with appropriate lights, sound, curtains, MC and acts. Whew!! The stage crew did double duty this year performing the matinee, as well as putting on quality shows. Not one act disappointed. I felt there should have been more standing ovations, but then again, I’m biased.
This week, it’s so hard to be back to normal-without the TV, radio and newsprint coverage. I have to thank my family, Hank and Jackie Moorehouse, Mark and Sue Holstein and the entire stage crew, Jack Bridwell, Kenny Miller, Jim Sommers and the rest of the sales crew. Only fifty weeks until next year-August 4, 5, 6 and 7, 2010.
