Gene Urban Launches New Parlor Show

By Gene Urban

I’ve been working on a new parlor magic show designed for small corporate groups. The show, entitled Magic 101… Theory & Explanations, is a series of magical vignettes that demonstrates why magic and mentalism confounds the modern mind.

The show has evolved out of the most common question I am asked by guests… “How do you do that?”

Rather than give some flippant answer, I decided to create a show that blends magical effects with history, theory and explanations.

Most guests know little about performance magic’s rich history. It is said that more books have been written about the magic than any other performance art. The first known book, The Discoverie of Witchraft, was written by Reginald Scot in 1584. Since that time 1000’s of books and well over a hundred thousand articles have been enjoyed by magicians around the world.

Magic 101… Theory and Explanations is first and foremost magical entertainment. However, guests also learn a bit about the art, its past and some of the techniques and theories employed by magicians. The result is a show today’s intelligent audience can enjoy on many levels.

Due to the intimate and personal nature of Magic 101…Theory and Explanations, it is recommended for small corporate and private party groups with less than 80 guests.
