The Oakland Magic Circle Presents…
Gene Anderson’s Lecture: “The Book LIVE!”
Free to OMC members! $15 admission for non members
Gene Anderson’s The Book received stellar reviews when it debuted last
year. Teller called it, “A gold mine.” Nine years in the writing, each of its
twenty-three routines are from Gene’s current working repertoire, routined and tightened through many years of live performances for real people. All are described in every tiny detail.
“The Book LIVE!” Lecture builds on The Book in a rather unique way. After performing each routine, its live verbal explanation is the narration for a projected PowerPoint presentation. The resulting information is presented more succinctly, with more clarity, and more entertainingly than you’ve probably ever seen magic explanations before.
Each routine presented offers multiple lessons, but the Big Overall Take-Home Lesson is how overcoming shortcomings and tiny problems can take any published routine to higher ground. Ultimately this will make that chosen effect uniquely your own.
“Gene Anderson has raised the bar for the way all magic lectures should be done. I can honestly say it was the best lecture I have ever seen given.” – Stephen Bargatze
