One of Mark Elsdon’s most prized routines is finally available. In book form. Designed to be performed for a group of people, this is a multi-phase card routine that causes absolute pandemonium. The audience reaction is priceless! In my experience there is nothing that can follow Limelight either in terms of mystery or laughter. A female spectator is quietly given a very simple instruction that enables her to perform incredible card magic. She repeatedly finds selected cards, names selected cards and eventually performs an ACAAN with a free choice of number where the performer never touches the deck at all. Very easy to do!
Any deck can be used and there is almost zero sleight-of hand for the performer to worry about and even less for the woman. If she can hold a deck, she’s good to go. The best thing is that the spectator doesn’t have a clue how she is accomplishing any of the effects. If she is quizzed afterwards, the most she will be able to say is that she was doing ‘something’, but neither she nor the other spectators would have any clue how that was related to the effects she accomplished.
The booklet contains all the handling and scripting details, as well as the psychology which strengthens the theatrical structure of the routine. It also discusses the selection of the correct person to use as the star and how to amplify their role to make their participation the absolute highlight of your performance.
“It’s brilliant.” – Dave Forrest
“Limelight, so simple to do yet extremely clever and baffling. I watched Mark fry a room full of magicians with this, including myself, it really is very clever indeed! This has gone straight onto my A-list.” – Gary Jones
