Just a chance to put to paper (ok, website ethereal paper) a quick thank you and shout outs to the folks who came out to see the show 50 Shades Of Great at The Oaks Theater Friday Aug 12.
To any performer not aware of this theater it is so worth it to perform in the remodeled old movie house, not only is it located in a very beautiful part of Pittsburgh, PA (Oakmont) it has some of the coolest vibes ever and really lends itself to the live performance of magic.
The Manager is a great guy with serious knowledge and background running theaters and is definitely an asset and a great guy. If you ever get the chance to work with Joe Wichryk II do so, he runs a great ship with a top notch operation.
I have to mention KDKA and Dave Crawley for spending time under the hot humid sun to video some fun pieces for that evening's news and being brave enough to wear a straitjacket while broiling: Modern Houdini takes stage at the Oaks Theater
The other members of the local media:

The Trib Live: buy tickets and escape artist will jump in river
Again, it was an honor to debut some of the new "tricks" and entertain in the oaks theater and chat with some folks after the show.
