We spent the morning in bed together feverishly creating... our show poster. Using Harry Blackstone Sr.'s circa 1920s poster as the base image, we added information for our upcoming show. Blackstone's show title "Oriental Nights" was appropriate for a 1920s magician. Since we reinterpret these oriental stereotypes, our show has a different title. We will present the famous Indian rope trick in the show. It will be a version unlike any seen on a western stage. We continue to refine traditional Indian jadoo for performance on the lyric hall's lovely proscenium stage. We will reproduce this poster as a postcard as well as a poster to promote the show. It's wonderful that an image created to promote magic shows in the 1920s can still be used to promote an Indian magic show today. If there is enough interest, we can also produce a very limited number of canvas prints of this poster, and even t-shirts if people pre-buy them. We will definitely make t-shirts for ourselves and the show crew. We look forward to seeing you all in just a few short weeks now. Better get back to work making that magic, and practicing juggling!!
