Well, interesting article at least.

Magic, like the circus, is an inherently dark and cruel art form, so there's no harm in sprinkling a little S&M titillation around the edges of the production. After all, people come to Vegas for kinky thrills and the seductive whiff of make-believe danger.

The problem is that "Believe" doesn't really have the courage of its most extreme convictions. So it swathes its fearless Grand Guignol fetishes in an awkward mishmash of themes, metaphors and visual stratagems. You name it, they try it here: rear-screen projections of dramatic cloud-swept skies, Middle Eastern dance music, "The Night on Bald Mountain," giant poppies, whirling dervishes.

From what I have heard of personal reviws coming from those who have seen the show, that review is very kind. Still, I guess I can't judge until I see it personally.

I doubt I will ever take the time though.
Beware of this and that.

Too bad. I hope it comes together and makes a good impression for magic as theatre overall. G'luck.
"What's your drug?" she asked. "Hope" he said, "The most addicting one of all."

We might very well know who put the bloinky eye on Angel and he won't be able to throw it off soon. Donating that wagered million to childrens' hospitals might be a step in the right direction away from hypochrissy and its attendant consumer whoa!
