[quote] "It's amazing that Broadway hasn't gone broke doing the exact opposite of what you think should be done." [/quote] I don't think the opposite. I think the same. [quote] "I truly believe that you do not understand theater. Stanislavski is probably rolling over in his grave." [/quote] I understand theater, otherwise I couldn't do magic properly. I have seen a lot of bad magicians, telling the audience what they were going to do, stating the obvious ("look I have a deck of cards."), or over-proving by showing their hands empty after every move. This is signaling that somethign fishy went on and pulls them out of the suspension of disbelief and puts them in an analytical mode, where they will judge everything you do. [quote] "Additionally, you've made it clear that you see nothing wrong in someone giving grieving people the false hope that they can help people communicate with their dead relatives."[/quote] If you have read my previous statement, I do have a problem if someone claimed that he could communicate with dead people. I have nothing against tarot-card readings, which is different. If talking to the dead is done in a theatrical sense (in movies and on stage in a play (a magic show is play)) then I don't have a problem with that. I hope I made my point more clear. [/quote]
