Dear Denizens,

All of us here at Browser's are certain that Mr. Close's brand new Magic Theory Lecture will be a truly inspiring and fun event at our shop. We are convinced that it will have a long lasting effect on your magic journey.

In may be the most important lecture you will ever have an opportunity to see.

Some of the topics that he will be covering in great detail will be...

  • What is theory?
  • Your definition of magic
  • The Power of a Real Magician
  • Conviction
  • Assumptions
  • Scripting vs. Not Scripting
  • Who (or What) Has the Power?
  • Control, Repose, and Chaos
  • and much more. (There may even be a trick or two.)

Michael Close has a worldwide reputation in the magic community as an author, a creator, a performer, and a consultant. He has been a student of the conjuring arts for over fifty years, and has been performing professionally since 1978. His specialty is sleight-of-hand, close-up magic, but he also has extensive experience in stand-up magic. He has lectured and performed for audiences around the world.

Michael has published six books of original material for magicians. These have been hailed as modern classics.

You’ve probably watched an episode or two of Penn & Teller: Fool Us. As you sit in your living room enjoying the performances of the magicians and the back-and-forth banter with Penn, you probably aren’t thinking about all the behind-the-scenes work that took place before the every episode was taped.

Michael Close is one of the two Fool Us magic consultants. His job is to make sure that every performer shines. He smoothes out rough edges, exploring alternative methods, making sure there is a strong dramatic arc, adjusting choreography to meet the demands of the camera, and basically working as hard as he can to produce seamless moments of astonishment.

We hope that you will buy a ticket and join us for the lecture. You will be happy that you did. And your audiences will be happy too.

Thank you for your kind support - Jeff Pinsky, Young Jeff, John Cardella, Luiz Castro & Lisa.

On the first Saturday of each month here at 'Browser's Den' we have a Magic Club that meets from 2:30pm until 5:00pm. Whether you have been interested in magic for two months or twenty years all are invited to attend.

At the club magicians and hobbyists sit around our 'magic' table and talk magic and show each other tricks. Plus cookies and snacks are provided.

Hope to see you at the next one!  Yours very truly - Jeff Pinsky, Jeff Hinchliffe, Lisa Close & John Cardella.
