New from Chris Beason, State of the Act is a small book filled with some big ideas.
As a magician, you often have to decide between commercial effects that are real workers and effects with really clever and innovative methods. With State of the Act, you don't have to pick one or the other. You get both.
Featuring 8 of Chris' favorite routines over the last decade, each one has been thoroughly audience tested and contains a method that's insanely clever. Featuring effects with drinks, phones, tea bags, gum, napkins and more, there's truly something for everyone.
Some of the highlights include:
Surface Tension: A ultra-clean effect where a signed coin passes through the side of a coffee cup. The method to this one will make you smile.
Treasurer: A strong effect with a borrowed bill where the magician apparently goes back in time with a truly magical kicker.
Steep: An incredible signed-object-to-impossible-location effect that uses an everyday object: a tea bag.
Strawesome 2.0: A great situational effect with a really fun method. Visually change a drink in front of your spectators!
