Michael Skinner at the Golden Nugget.
He is the resident magician and strolls between Lily Langtree's and
Stefanos restaurant. Michael has been referred to as one of the
worlds finest close-up performers by some very notable people. I
was fortunate enough to have dinner with him during my last visit
and must say that he is also a very nice person and real gentleman.

A very entertaining show, and an amazingly good value for
the money (only about $10). Some of the effects were old
chestnuts, like chopping off an audience member's head with a
guillotine, but there were some very nice illusions, and some
good slight of hand with birds. In addition to the magic, there
are two very good specialty acts: Anthony Gatto, one of the two or
three best jugglers in the world, and a group that plays basketball
and jumps rope on unicycles.

In Reno:

"Spellbound" starring The Pendragons

In Beverly MA -
From: jpoulter@island.amtsgi.bc.ca (Jack Poulter)

Le Grande David etc...
This company of performers also presents shows several
times a month at the Larcom Theatre also in Beverly MA. A visual
banquet at most reasonable rates. Highly recommended.
