Wizardry … Backstage
“Real wizardry remains hidden. It’s already happened backstage. Our goal is that, by the time the curtain goes up, it looks like magic. The final deception is always ‘effortless.’ That’s the hardest illusion, because that’s what endows anything with magic.”
Jim Steinmeyer doesn’t “magish.” For decades, he’s been the wizard behind the scenes, innovating for other great magicians. Through his designs and creations, his publications on the subject of magic and magic history, Jim Steinmeyer has redefined the art of illusion—for audiences, performers, and readers. He’s created the impossibilities that formed the stepping-stones in the careers of great magicians, and the memorable wonders in season after season of Broadway hits.
