I just wanted to say last time I saw Lance Burton (a few years back) he rarely used any "boxes". I can only think of threeor four.

What happens if you are performing in a black box theatre than what do you do?

Just a question to ful your fire.

All great opinions as usual...

Just so I make myself clear on my thoughts expressed before..

This all depends on how the Magician plays the "Magic" angle.. If it's eminating from him/her,then the boxes should play a secondary role in the presentation.. If the boxes are the "instruments" used to achieve the "Magic", then they should be focused on more.. As someone mentioned before, a "thematic" approach..

Imho of course..

However, regardless of which approach is taken, it MUST be ENTERTAINING!

If you present your box illusions with style and with an entertaining plot or theme and good music then they (audiences) will love it!
However,IMHO if you just come out onto stage and do your box illusion, with no story, plot, or variation on the "trick" that is behind the box then you will probably bore them to death.
