St, George's Hall: Behind the Scenes At England's Home of Mystery - Anne Davenport & John Salisse
During the first third of the 20th century, London was generally recognized as being the focal point of the magic world. It could be argued that St. George's Hall was largely responsible for this claim.
Anne Davenport and John Salisse invite you to join them backstage to peek into the Maskelyne workshop where so many classic illusions first saw the light of day, to eavesdrop on board meetings where egos and personalities often clashed, and to watch from the wings as the world's top conjurors entertain generations of London theatre goers. The story of St. George's Hall is the history of magic in England during its glorious golden age. This is #10 in Magic Words award-winning series of Magical Pro-Files.
