On Thursday, September 15, I'll be involved in a most unusual show in Toronto:
Cheap Tricks (it's not what you think it is... I swear)
Many performers dread the thought of arriving at an event to discover that part or all of their show is missing (or more likely, that some airline personnel have skilfully redirected it to the wrong city as part of their mission to increase the amount of entropy in the universe.) This is a show where we make this happen on purpose.
A few hours before the show, seven magicians will be given a limited budget and a destination store (like a convenience store) and have to generate an act based on what they can acquire in a limited amount of time. It's a test of ingenuity, creativity and audacity. I'll be one of the judges, which I suspect may be a more difficult job that what awaits the performers.
The show details for the show are:
Cheap Tricks Thursday, September 15 @ 8:00 PM Revival (783 College Street)
Advance tickets are $20 and are available online now. If you're able to make it out I'm sure it will be a most exciting and unique evening.
