Smoke and Mirrors Magic Show
What is Smoke and Mirrors Routine?
Get ready for a magical performance that will keep you guessing long after the curtain drops. The Smoke and Mirrors Magic Show's unifying theme is overcoming fear as a motivator for extraordinary achievement. The magic tricks include transforming objects, levitation, and telepathic powers are executed by Albie Selznick and his assistants with matter-of-fact assurance that belies the intricate sleights-of-hand involved. Selznick’s low-key, self-deprecating humor makes the wizardry all the more impressive. What most distinguishes Smoke and Mirrors, however, is the personal connection that Selznick explores between his life and his art. Selznick poignantly underscores his early attraction to magic as a skill that could be learned in solitude. His fascination with Harry Houdini’s promise to make contact from the grave, and the imaginary human-sized rabbit companion he conjures up as an assistant, further link back to a childhood void. Smoke and Mirrors demonstrates Selznick’s conquest of his own greatest fear of not being extraordinary. Smoke and Mirrors greatest trick of all: making boredom completely disappear.
