Masters of Illusion Live—-in San Antonio.


IMG_3666Susan and I had the good fortune to catch the “Masters of Illusion Live” tour last night when they stopped off at the beautiful Majestic Theatre in San Antonio. This was the second date of the current 21-day segment of their ongoing tour. While there is a little shaking down to do, I suspect the show will be as tight as a drum within a couple of dates.

The show was an excellent family production that was jam packed with magic that thrilled the audience and left them on their feet applauding at the finale. It was a very nicely presented affair that kept every audience members attention throughout its two hour running time.

The show featured Jason Andrews, Michael Finney, Greg Gleason, Nathan Phan and Michael Turco. All the performances were IMG_3672excellent, with Michael Finney stealing the show (as he so often does!) with his wonderfully seasoned comedy magic. I want to give a special shout out to Jason Andrews for his masterful blend of manipulation and participation magic.

I have to really commend Gay Blackstone on the way she has turned her award winning TV show into a full evening production. Her understanding of magic and skill at matching performers to her ticket buying demographic is exemplary. She brings another era and dimension to the already legendary influence of the Blackstone family in the magic world.
