It was an incredible two nights with full houses both nights for the premiere for my new formal close-up show, “Beyond the Mirror”. The venue was the cozy Absinthe Artisan at Boat Quay, overlooking the iconic Singapore River.
Billed as “The Most Exclusive Magic Show in Town”, the showcases saw an invitee list comprising of executives and directors from high end F & B outlets, an integrated resort & casino, private banks, media and luxury brands.
Enthusiasm was high on both nights as the well traveled individuals all enjoyed the material, concept and presentation of the entire show.
The show is called “Beyond the Mirror” because it represents how magicians practice their acts in front of a mirror before performing them for a live audience. In the case of this show, the material has been in practiced in front of my mirror for 18 years but the time has come for the acts to go beyond the mirror to a live crowd.
I presented a 40-minute version and it should be no surprise that the prelude to the show is an illusion with an actual mirror. But, the actual opener is an original 5-minute multi-phase/ multi-routine act with a circular plot that ties up nicely in the end.
The show continued with a bevy of routines that include very distinct and unique plots with intriguing objects.
One highlight of the show was a version of our linking fingers rings through glass table that Ning & I did for the season finale of “M for Magic” but using a miniature glass table.
After the showcases, we spoke to many people who were interested to book the show or have the show at their venue for a ticketed event. In fact, the response has been so positive, we will announce a one night ticketed public show that will be staged next month! We are also in discussions with a single agent from the local event industry to represent the show to the industry.
New informational packets are available with full details of the show including format, set-up, show highlights and customization for different events & venues. If you are interested to book the show, contact me 🙂
