At a time when even intimate parlor magic would be too large of a crowd for us, there are so many great magicians out there proving the show does go on. Virtual magic show reviews hopefully to follow here at some point, but for now, something a little different (magicians can have a little critique-free promotion from us, as a treat.) We’re going to start with just sharing lists of some cool magic shows you can see from the comfort (/confinement) of your own home. Please, please do get in touch with us and let us know your favorite magicians who are doing online shows and events so we can include them in Roundups #2 onwards!
