The production would make for a clean effect.

Might be hard to get a handle on. Just the idea makes me bristle.

What we do may depend on who we is and what it is we want to achieve. If we is me then we want to amuse and amaze the audience. What we do to achieve those two objectives is first we offer our audience some fictional nonsense through patter and then prove it makes sense with a magic experiment. The absurdity of nonsense apparently making sense amuses them and it also amazes them for it is impossible for that which one knows is nonsense to make sense. What we do in other words is create a nonsense/sense dilemma. We are not amused by magicians who simply want to astonish people.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.
