If I had only one magic routine to perform, it would be my Sorcerer’s Apprentice act, commonly called “The Miser’s Dream,” or “Aerial Treasury.” It’s my favorite routine, ever. Many magicians have put their own touch on it, and many versions, gimmicked pails and coins exist to help the beginner to get a feel for the routine.

Bob Solari has created a simple and elegant solution to an almost sleight of hand-free version of the miser’s dream. In Solari’s version, the magician picks up a small can, about four inches tall, and three and half across, reaches into the air and apparently produces a number of Kennedy half dollars that are placed with a clink into the can.

I used this effect in an outdoor show once, with much success. It is indeed very effective, and drop dead simple. My own 'clever brain' saw the original demo, and thought there was more to the cup/pail than there actually is. Bob's version of this classic, is a beautiful reminder of how some of the best secrets in magic come to be: by paying close attention to what ALREADY IS-and capitalizing on that. The catching coins here, is... [Read More]

Bob has a very tough job. He looks at a classic piece of magic, and makes it work easier. This is an impressive piece of magic, and Bob makes it easy to work, and even makes it a comedy act, which it is.
Bob os a genius at what he does.
