Magic Shows in Minneapolis

on November 22, 2016

Many magicians have performed in Minneapolis. The great Houdini was one who performed here many times. Blackstone the Great and Thurston also filled the downtown Minneapolis theaters.

I remember seeing Blackstone Jr. perform at the lovely Orpheum Theater to a packed house and it was fantastic.  He floated a light bulb above the audience and brought laughter as he vanished a small birdcage while a dozen children touched it right up to the moment it disappeared.


On the 100th anniversary of his Father Harry Blackstone’s birth Blackstone Jr. donated the original floating light bulb to the Smithsonian.  This bulb was designed by Thomas Edison.


Watch Harry Blackstone present the Vanish Bird Cage here…


Magic is fascinating and makes the mind wonder.  This is a great way to get our minds creative juices flowing as we try to figure out how the amazing stunts are done.
