This is one of my favorite creations from the pandemic. The virtual performance landscape required all magicians to think creatively about what our effects could (and should) entail. This fully fleshed out routine is a fabulous plot to begin with, and I hope to have added a few new touches that mold the general concept into something well suited to virtual shows.
My hope is that magicians – whether they choose to use this effect as is or adapt some ideas hidden inside to their own styles – digest this information with an eye to the overall construction. This is a well tested routine and (while it takes a bit of work) is absolutely worth the effort for the amount of participation, interaction, and engagement it sets the performer up for!
