I was wondering if anyone has presented the "Modern Cabinet Illusion" - "in the round".

I have performed the illusion on traditional stages and on TV, but never in the round. I have been asked to perform a series of shows in a circus and would like to use "The Modern Cabinet" or variation thereof in the show.

As well--

Ideally, I would like to be able to open both front and back of the cabinet. I know this is more like a "Mummy Case" but if it was possible that would be great. I only need to produce and/or vanish one assistant - 5'6" and 105 lbs.

Any comments? Suggestions? Advice?

All help is appreciated.

Thank you

Have a look at Rand Woodbury's 'Body Transformer' from the first 'Illusionworks' book. Ditch the platform and steps and just have the box on it's own castors on the floor and you essentially have an open, walk through Modern Cabinet capable of producing two girls. Extra details on it's construction and presentation can also be found on the Illusionworks DVD volume 2-Special Secrets.

Chuck Kirkham had a production cabinet that opened both sides that could be used in a "Modern Cabinet" production. (I think he may have actually been used for this.) It was produced and used in a skating revue show.

The mummy case won't work of course in the round.
Oh, my friend we're older but no wiser, for in our hearts the dreams are still the same...

Check out my friend, Don Arthur's, book ILLUSIONS IN THE ROUND. All its illusions were designed to be performed in the round at the circus. Morris Costumes carries it. Smile
