Stage Show Magic Manchester Lowry
Welcome to the Monday Blog
This week I was lucky enough to go and see some stage show magic Manchester Lowry Theatre with my wife Cheryl
Here is a short review of a most excellent show
The show was at the Lowry Theatre Studio to a full house of enthusiastic magic lovers there to watch TV magician Ali Cook
The show started with a parody of a cheesy 70s magician performing in a stereotypical way.That is not to say the magic was cheesy as a girl was made to appear from a burning cage and a member of the audience was levitated in a most baffling way.
Ali then broke caricature and introduced himself.
The show concept was based on a book The Principles and Deceptions and we were told that we were about to witness effects from every category of magic from illusions to mind reading, Close up magic (on Stage) to demonstrations of telekinesis
The show did not disappoint,It was presented with a tongue in cheek humour that both entertained and baffled the audience
The show was very interactive with many people being asked to help on the stage. It was great to see Ali having fun with his helpers and never making them uncomfortable
As a magician it was great to see Classic magic effects brought up to date and presented in an entertaining and fun way.The magic of Ali Cook is enjoyable and will fool the most knowledgeable of audiences but if I take my Magicians hat of it was just a really good night out with a lot of laughs
I would recommend seeing Ali Cook live if you get a chance. We were really pleased we did.
Magic for my daughter
On a slightly different note I was given a leaf by my three year old daughter in the driveway of our house this week and she asked to see some magic this is what I was able to do!!!!
