The Illusionists - audience still amazed

One of the fun things watching a magic or an illusion performance is trying to figure out how the tricks were executed.   When so many tricks were revealed on TV, it would be up to the performers to deliver a slick routine, and of course entertain the audience. 

Overall, The Illusionists, playing at the Mastercard Theatres of the Marina Bay Sands, managed to  capture our imagination and attention.  The Clairvoyanys’ Thommy Ten and Amelie van Tass kept us guessing how they managed to mind read the audience; Krendl the Escapologist escaped from the watertank, and Charlie Frye with his comic timing and acrobatics.  Not all acts worked though, and the show lacked a storyline.

Nonetheless, it was good fun and audience enjoyed the interactive card trick.  The encore piece by Hyun Joon Kim (the Manipulator) with a Singapore element closed the show well.  All in, a good night out.
