Legendary magician the Great Baldini tells his life story through a series of stage illusions, from his first trick on his 12th birthday to his career pinnacle rivalling the great Houdini.
Each chapter is built around a very entertaining, colourful and theatrical illusion with significant audience participation. Whilst the magic can be a bit hit and miss and Baldini’s old trouper’s spirit is sorely tested the audience is often helpless with laughter as Baldini desperately attempts to hold it together and soldier on.
The illusions are excellent (Baldini is an award-winning member of the Magic Circle, Wessex Magical Association and Bristol Society of Magic). Baldini is an aging trouper, determined that the show must go on. This adds a level of comedy and theatre beyond a simple magic performance.
