Review: David Copperfield Is Amazing

5/12/2008 11:17:00 AM
David Copperfield was in town this past weekend to do a few performances at the Opera House. I had the pleasure of going to his Sunday afternoon performance yesterday and it was amazing. It's the first time I've ever seen a magic show in person and I found it to be highly entertaining.

I still can't figure out how he made a full sized Lincoln Convertible appear on stage out of nowhere. I was sitting pretty close to the front of the stage and was doing my best to peel back my eyelids so I didn't blink and I still couldn't see where it came from. Logic tells me the car had to have been there the entire time - but I just can't figure out how. Those crazy illusions - so neat.

The highlight of the show was the fact that I was chosen at one point to be an audience participant in one of the tricks. I got to be up on stage with David Copperfield! It was awesome. I wish I could have gotten a picture with him, but alas I was not able to.

If you have the opportunity, I highly recommend you check out one of his shows. According to his tour schedule, he'll be in Providence tomorrow evening and then do a brief stint in NY and PA and then it's back to Vegas.

    The show is only 1 hour & 15 minutes, with ten minutes of it being video filler. He opens the show by talking about how he's gonna vanish himself & reappear on the other side of the planet, but does'nt deliver. The show is more gags & video than magic out of the little magic he does manage performing. He should retire, or take a couple years off 2 make a new show, or he'll just continue losing more fans by boring them & himself with the same show for 7 years. The only thing that does'nt change is the prices, they keep getting higher every year. His website is equally as lacking, as it was last updated in 2001!!! He used 2 be great & put on 2 hour shows with several grand illusions & no filler. Now its the complete opposite. He's clearly past his prime & his passion is long gone. Even as a die hard fan, I will not waist my money on this piss poor show again.

    It took me three full days of work to earn the money to buy tickets to this show for my husband,myself and our 8 year old son. It took David Copperfield 1 hour to perform three illusions that lacked showmanship or enthusiasm. Im at a lose to explain why a performer of this calibre can deliver so little to his fans which have made him what he is. A disgrace!
