"I'm really humbled and excited about being able to offer Peter Samelson's Heartstrings routine in a Pro Pack! I've watched Peter perform this at least a dozen times, in studio and in front of live audiences and it always moves me - and I can't tell you the last time a magic routine has EVER done that. And now we have put together the whole thing in one of the most elaborate instructional pro packs I have ever produced."
- Bill Abbott

Peter Samelson is not a new name to the magic community. From his role as producer at NYC's Monday Night Magic - New York's longest running magic show, to his endearing and dramatic presentations featured on numerous TV programs - not the least of which is his beautiful presentation of A Snowstorm in China.

Those fortunate enough to witness a live performance of Peter's Gypsy Thread routine, entitled Heartstrings, know the magical and emotional effect it has on audiences. It has the unique qualities of playing well in close-up and on the largest of stages. All with a piece of thread and a script that took Peter over seven years to perfect.

In Peter's release of Heartstrings we have put together the most exhaustive work on Gypsy Thread from a single performer ever committed to video instruction.

Here is what is included in the Heartstrings Pro Pack:

Intensive Instructional DVD with:

  • Studio and Live Stage Performances
  • Origins & Influences
  • Method Overview
  • Various Thread Types Analyzed
  • Pre-Show Set-Up and Preparation
  • Wardrobe Considerations
  • Lighting Considerations
  • Music Considerations
  • Full Routine Walk-Through
  • A Conversation with Bill Abbott & Peter Samelson.
In Addition:
  • A beautiful royalty-free music theme written and performed on the piano by composer Scott Turk specifically for the Heartstrings routine - as used by Peter over the past couple decades. Included as an mp3 file easily accessed on any Mac/PC.
  • Printed Script written by Peter Samelson
  • Further reading & study recommendations

Ok..I'm feeling kinda dumb - I wrote that the printed script was missing. It's not. It's actually inside what I assumed was the packing for the DVD. D'oh.

By reading the product description you may think you're getting the Pro-pack....that's not the case. I got a DVD and nothing else... For the same $ I could have gotten the pro-pack from Bill Abbott's site.
The difference? A written script. There's no file on the DVD that I could find. I did the live chat thing and they said they'd get back to me, but that was several days ago and I've heard nothing.
The routine itself is great - and a great deal for a professional performer especially since the music is included! It might not seem like a big deal not to have the script, but it is - especially because I am a pro and I want to do dome "mark ups."
Penguin is usually great about these things, so hopefully they'll make it right...If they do I'll try to edit this review and let you know :)
