Lights, Curtain, Music, Problem by Brian T. Lees

The house is packed. Standing room only! Your music starts and you walk out to begin the show and everything goes wrong. The music fails, you forgot to load some of the magic. Your favorite routine comes apart and you are standing in front of a large audience with no clue what do to next.

Speak with any entertainer and they will confirm that mistakes and problems are part of the performance. These situations are not reserved for any specific magician. Young or old, just beginning or seasoned veteran, we all experience problems at some time or another.

This ebook helps identify ways to prepare yourself for the unexpected. It takes a different approach on rehearsal. One is never lost when there are choices to work with. This text will help you develop cover up, work around, and work through ideas to use for problems.

A person I always looked up to once said: problems during a performance are not the issue. The true measure of an entertainer is the way he/she handles them. This is improvising through train wreck rehearsal at its best.
