Who doesn’t love a good magic trick? Whether it’s a street performer “levitating” off the curb or the classic “disappearing coin,” it always leaves us scratching our heads. Even if we know how the trick is done, a master magician can still make us wonder how they made it look so easy.
That’s their job, to confuse and amaze! Many times, on stage it’s the lovely assistant who is the accomplice. An assistant can seem like a sidekick when in reality, they help the magician pull off some of the best illusions. While you are busy enjoying the flash and pizzazz of the lights and costumes, there is deception occurring right before your very eyes
