Topic: 1970's themed show help?
Message: Posted by: ades888 (Nov 28, 2010 07:53PM)
I have a show where they want me to run 1970's themes through (that's the Xmas Party Theme)

Having been born in the 80's, I never experienced that era...any suggetions for effects with 70's tie ins?

It seemed to be one of the least eventful decades (relative to others anyway)

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

Produce a mirror ball.

The 70s were full of events... Watergate, missing tape, Vietnam, high inflation, energy crunch, long lines at the gas pump....
You may want do a little reading to find out everything that happened.

Depending on what type of an act you do mostly you are talking about costuming, patter, and/or music.

I have two words for you: Doug Henning.

Yes, Doug Henning's "The Magic Show" was on Broadway.

There was also, in 1976, the US Bicentennial, with red, white and blue, eagles, the Spirit of '76, and the Liberty Bell all over everything. There were a couple of years build-up to it, too.

Doug Henning and 1970's are synominous. :)

How did the show go?

Here are some suggestions for the future 70's magi
Mirror ball zombie
Guillotine or hand chopper tribute to Alice Cooper
Cut and retired wide tie

Watch reruns of that 70's show

Actually, the 70s could more accurately be divided into 'early' and 'late':

Early: winding down of the Hippie/Flower Power era
Late: The Disco Era

Combining those smacks of mild anachronism.
