TV Magician David Blaine made “Street Magic” popular with his first TV Special just over 10 years ago. Mr. Blaine took strong magic to the streets but for the first time the camera focused on the audience’s reactions, not just the tricks. It was a hit. Wayne Alan will try to evoke many of those same audience reactions with his award-winning sleight of hand magic. You will have fun at this up close and personal show. You too will be awed and amazed! David and Wayne are pictured below.
