Okay, I didn't know where to place this as it covers any general stage magic. Grand illusion or not.

Say you can for whatever reason perform 10 stage magic pieces. Which 10 do you choose? Anything from the De Kolta Chair, Bowl O Rama, 5 Card opener to Broom Levitation to Stratosphere, dollar in lemon, multiplying balls, change bag, and silk fountain etc...

Assume you have an audience of 300-500.

The absolute most versatile illusion that I could recommend (and I make nothing off of this) for the vast majority of working magicians is the Tubed Out. It is angle proof, breaks down and sets up quickly, is not that heavy or difficult to transport, ALWAYS gets a good reaction from the audience, can be done close up and it travels and wears well. We have done it hundreds of times indoors, outdoors, on stage, on banquet hall floors, on risers, surrounded and more. It was a great investment.

I don't know if I am able to compile a top 10 list. However some of my favorite large stage effects are:

-Touching on Hoy (Luke Jermay)
-Metamorphosis/Sub Trunk Illusion
-Compact Disc Illusion (Andrew Mayne, Solo X)
-Game Show Effect (Sorry, I don't know the proper name. It is by Max Maven, and is on the DVD "Nothing")
-Design Duplications (Particularly concepts by Banachek and Osterlind)

If I think of any more, I'll be sure to post them.

@RJE, do you have a link of Tubed Out? (Embarrassingly) I have never heard of it. Or is it more of a concept than it is an effect?

It used to be carried by Doug Tilford and that is where we got ours. I'm not sure who would carry it now.
