I think Brad's show ran in Branson (?) for a limited time this past summer.

Did anyone see it?

I heard it was suppose to have some new illusions in it.

Gerry,

You may want to check out Brad's Facebook pages, there are some photos and video clips on them.

It would be interesting to see a full review though.

I saw his show at Dollywood this summer. It's a good show... very theatrical. It was written by Jim Steinmeyer.

Elevator Appearance
Revolving Door Appearance of multiple assistants
Several small pieces of magic here like the airbourne wine glass, appearing money in brief case, etc. All city themed.

Fire Spiker with Second girl assistant at the end.

Torn and Restored Napkin with Kid from the Audience

Dancing Hank
Geometrick

Firefly D-light into Shadow Box into Standard Aga Levitation

"Snow Job" (from Conjuring Anthology.. was cool to see this performed)

Double Sawing in Half (2 girls go into thin model sawing, legs are swapped and they come out in multi colored costumes)

Burn and Restored Shoe

Things that Go Bump Ala Million Dollar Mystery


That was the basic show... I may be missing a crystal casket or something like that here or there but that was it for the most part. There were several bits with a "Magician" Character that was dressed in top hat and tails, performing silk tricks,etc. The basic story line was how Brad Ross wanted to "Be" this classic magician.. and he learned that he needed to be himself.

It was the perfect show for Dollywood and I imagine he will be invited back next year. Dollywood has tried other magic shows that were a bit too vegas or too edgy for their audiences (in my opinion). Brad Ross seemed to fit the bill perfectly.. a big flashy illusion show by a sqeaky clean "Disney" magician.

It's a cheesy show in some ways.. but the theatrical moments are very well staged. The Shadow Box was the highlight of the show for me... it was staged extremely well and got the best reaction from the audience at the show I attended.
