Bill Wood Presents: Magic You’ll Enjoy

Virgin Mary finger puppet

Posted By on Thu, Sep 6, 2012 at 11:45 AM


Bill Wood Presents: Magic You’ll Enjoy consists of a string of standard parlor magic tricks – minds are mysteriously read, ropes do unropely things, and so on—linked together by Bill Wood’s self-effacing banter. Perhaps unintentionally, the show demonstrates that the actual “magic” in a magic act can be largely incidental: Wood is a competent illusionist, but it’s his wacky personality that really sells the performance. I have, for example, seen a coin disappear and reappear many times before. I have never seen a finger puppet of the Virgin Mary become involved.

I don’t know how well Bill Wood Presents: Magic You’ll Enjoy would stand up against the full-time magic acts at, say, the Busker Festival. But at the Fringe, it’s a welcome diversion from the norm.
