Series of Performance Artist Scripts for Magicians

Excerpt from the book by Ron Bauer:

In the viewpoint of the entertainment industry, the conventional magic performance is "show and tell." There is no drama. The comedy is forced. The mystery isn't how, it's why!  To them, the only magic that has any general appeal is spectacle. But, most magicians don't have the budgets or opportunities for high production values in their shows, let alone informal performances, for spectacle. To overcome this general opinion and compete in the mainstream, magicians must bring in other theatrical elements, or resign themselves to remain on the fringe.

Mainstream performers, such as actors, singers, comedians, dancers, and so on, you see, have access to writers, directors, producers, and technical specialists in related fields. Trying to single-handedly manage some level of expertise in ALL those areas, while simultaneously becoming a master performer, is beyond reasonable expectations. What most magicians need, to put it mildly, is a little help.

That's why I'm releasing twenty-four performance scripts. These have been completely worked out and tested by a variety of magicians who perform before the public in various venues. While most of the material is meant for small groups and "table top" staging, the strategic and tactical thinking included in everyone applies to performances under nearly all conditions. Your stage may be a table, in the round, or the traditional proscenium situation. Possibly, it may be determined what a camera lets the audience see. What matters, though is your ability to capture the interest and acknowledgment from the public without the benefit of spectacle, and entertain. In "technical terms," a completely worked out script provides you with all the elements for an entertaining magical presentation.
