Master Magician Lance Burton and All About Eve have one thing in common. They are perfect. We can watch either over-and-over without need for any breaks. But this is a magic blog read by fives to tens of people every day. We are not here to talk about Bette Davis incredible role in her Oscar® winning film, but the incredible magic of Lance Burton.
Watching Lance Burton is, in a word, wonderful. He has the sleight of hand skills to astound magicians, the professional illusionist chops to wow the crowd and he loves animals and is a very nice person.
We know magicians who love animals but fail at meeting the remaining criteria. Lance Burton has it all and always has. His sleight of hand act on Johnny Carson iced the deal for us. He does things that can only be explained as magic. We don’t look for secrets or flaws, we just drink it in like a gerbil immediately after his wheelwork.
We say all this because Lance Burton will be in Modesto August 18th and performing in the perfect environment to see him work. The Mary Stuart Rogers Theater is a fantastic venue and reminds us of the Lance Burton Theater that once held his nightly show at the Monte Carlo in Las Vegas. The sight-lines are great and the place is plush.
If you are anywhere near Modesto, you need to visit the theater and experience the true magic you will see by the Master Magician Lance Burton.
