This might be a little confusing, so excuse me for going into more detail then is probably needed for this particular post, and repeating myself a bit, I'm not quite sure how to explain what I'm looking for.

I know that there is a section called "Stage, Platform and Parlour"

The sub sections include
Grand Illusion
Boxes, tubes & bags
Knots and Loops
and Finger/stage manipulation.

However what about just a sub-sections called "Mixed Parlor Acts" or "Variety Acts"

For example, I want to start a thread to discuss possible ideas for a show using a mixture of stand up effects that can play for either 20 people or 200 people. That have a variety of different effects and genres including: card effects, Mentalism, PVP by Mark Spellman, Chop cup, Bill in lemon, Confabulation, Thread and rope effects etc.

Can there be a section added, Or is there a section to discuss the development or talk about effects that will work for a parlor act of mixed genres of effects that don't particularly fit in any of the subsections: Grand Illusion, Boxes, tubes & bags, Knots and Loops and Finger/stage manipulation. - because technically I want to do a mixture of all of the sections.

I don't want to put it in a mentalism thread because it also contains sleight-of-hand effects, I don't want to put it in the workers sections because it also has other effects than cards. etc etc for each section. I also want to talk about ideas on how to do packages in the same show, like Doing strolling magic prior to the show, along with the specific detail of the show itself.


So that is why I am requesting a section called - ACT DEVELOPMENT or SHOW DEVELOPMENT with sub sections called Close-up, Stage, Parlor, and Strolling. Allowing members to post mixed effect acts and all things regarding the structure of acts, packages for marketing, and everything to create a marketable show in detail from a-z.

What section is the right section to post in for the time being?

Thank you!!!
