WHAT YOU GET

You get a very nice little box that is used in performance. You also get a stack of mini postcards and some other items to make a gimmick. You get a very good explanation on DVD.

WHAT I LIKE

This is amazing, super clever, and a real performance piece. This is not just a trick, this is a beautiful piece of magic performance art. The methods are unique, clever, and so different from anything I have ever seen before. You will need to do a bit of Do-it-yourself work. I wouldn’t say anything is extremely difficult, but this is one of those pieces where you are going to need to put some thought into it to make it personal to you and your style.


WHAT I DON’T LIKE

This was a tough one, because I gave it five stars even though there were a few parts missing and the explanation was sparse. It is going to take you some time to figure out how to make it work, but I found it doable. I had to fill in some of the gaps in both parts that were not too difficult to get, and in the less than thorough explanation.This is not something you would likely perform in walk-around. I suppose you could, but this is more of a special routine that you might do on a special occasion.

AT A GLANCE

Skill level required: 3 of 5.
Audience management skill required: 3 of 5.
Performance angles: 360 degrees
Reset time required: You would need around ten minutes to get this set up again for your next performance. I wouldn’t suggest this one for walk-around.
DIY time involved in advance: around 60 minutes once you have all the parts.

VERDICT

Amazing routine, amazing method, and a masterpiece of magic theater. Be prepared that for the price, you get something amazing, but there are missing parts and not the greatest explanation. I probably should have given it a slightly lower rating, but I just love it as an awesome piece with a totally unique method.

If you are hesitant about the price, you might be dissapointed to not get something complete and thorough. If that doesn't bother you, then this could be one of your masterpiece magic theater pieces.

Suggestions from the Reviewer

The only suggestion is that you need to put some time into this to both figure out the missing pieces and to make it your own piece of magic theater.
