Stage Magic

Apr 10, 2022 | | Say something

A stage magician will have a set of props and costumes particular to his show, but his routine will inevitably follow the same basic format as every other magician. Each will by necessity follow an optimal sequence required for ‘magic’ to occur. If he fails in this regard he will not make it as a magician. The audience want to believe in the magic, or at least they want to be credibly challenged by it. Therefore the props and the timing all serve to deliver the punch line at the opportune moment; the moment when the audience ‘ascends’ to that sweet spot of wondrous rapture. The moment in which, even if just for a second, they believe. So in that respect all magicians are very much alike; the magic they perform is all the same magic.
