How wonderful to see 5 magicians do their thing. A fine night. But the quality varied.
I found Jason Andrews to be a master of classic sleight, Dana Daniels to be unusually funny and parodying of classic magic and Mark Kornhauser to be very clever and amazing in his ability to memorize (He not only told 8 of 8 people what town their zipcode was in but then proceeded to tell all 8's zipcodes and towns in sequence.) Jade did a fabulously beautiful opening routine before, unfortunately, descending into amateurishness: terrible patter, bad quick-change act, and would you believe---the tired old linking rings trick. And she only used 3 rings. Utterly unredeeming was Christopher Hart whose closer was a silly routine with a pink hand connected to "invisible" fishing wire. Bad, bad.
That said, it was a great overall experience and I hope that "Champions of Magic" returns to the Bay Area--with Hart replaced, Jade with an improved act. Or even better, 5 different top magicians every few months.
