Santa Monica’s Albie Selznick spreads the gospel of illusion
by Evan Henerson for The Argonaut
Your kid has been pestering you for more ever since that birthday party when the guy sawed a lady in half and made live rabbits jump out of her stomach. But you have no connections with anybody at the members-only club of clubs, The Magic Castle, and you don’t have the scratch for a trip to Vegas. The YouTube segments and TV shows are getting played out. You want magic, and you want it live.
Not only does longtime actor-magician Albie Selznick feel your void, he’s figured out a way to fill it: by giving a bunch of his magical friends a place to work their best routines and try out some new illusions.
