Presto, change-o! It's the Masters of Illusion

Masters of Illusion take the stage Saturday and Sunday.

When I heard the Masters of Illusion show was headed to the Mohegan Sun for Saturday and Sunday performances in the Arena, I got all caught up in Magick-ness. For example, even though you're reading these words - they're not really here. I made you THINK they're here but it's all a product of my sorcery. In reality, the newspaper space or the computer screen you're looking at are ? BLANK!

Another thing. Just this morning, I was dressed in a straitjacket and dumped in the middle of Long Island Sound tied to six anchors normally used on oil tankers - and yet I escaped!

Of course I escaped: I have to get to the Masters of Illusion show! Based on the popular MNTV network television series - cryptically called "Masters of Illusion" - the Sun presentations will boast several renowned folks from the magic world including escapologists, illusionists and quick-change artists, as well as exotic wild animals and beautiful dancers.
