"Ladies and gentlemen...introducing...the Subtrunk (or Metamorphosis)!!!"

Hope this helps,

I would add a loud and melodious "Taa-dah!" on the end of Bryan's introduction. Otherwise, sounds fine to me!

OK, Donster... just playing with your words. Clarify what you had in mind and maybe you can get some real help here.

Yes, get a third party involved. Or even a fourth and have the two of them hold the curtain.

Make sure that if the girl is wearing
skimpy costume that she should either
costume change into something with more
on or maybe nothing at all.

Gee Marshall,

Shades of Charlotte Pendragon.

I would make it a historical piece discussing the differences between houdini's original and current versions.

My idea was that the patter would be something like this "only organic matter can pass through the metamorpises" (kind of like the terminater) so not only would the two people switch places but they would have each others clothes on. this would propably work better if it was with two people of the same sex, unless you wanted it to be a comedy routine. I think its a really good idea because why would two peoples clothes travel with them and not the bag their in. It just doesn't make any sense if you do it any other way.
