The sharply dressed duo have an enormous repertoire of tricks, woven cleverly into the story. The combination of tall tales and magic is an entertaining twist on more conventional shows – not only gobsmacking but a great yarn and funny to boot. From mindreading to conjuring, escapology to illusion, their skills are as versatile as they are confounding. It’s like Holmes and Watson with superpowers.
Set up like a storybook, each ‘chapter’ involves a member
of the audience
in some unintimidating way. This makes for a great interactive
well as rendering the majority of acts even more baffling. Morgan
and West have
a graceful rapport between themselves, as well as the crowd:
tricks appear effortless,
and as authentic as their vintage waistcoats and tails.
