Give My Regards To Broadway
You already know that Daytona Magic provides magic for some of the biggest names in magic, from magicians who try not to get fooled and the magicians who fool them, to magicians who make large national monuments vanish into thin air in New York! But what you may not know is that we also supply magic effects and props for film and television shows as well. Now, being theatre junkies at heart, we were thrilled when we were asked to supply magic for one of the most fantastic broadway shows in production right now; “Disney’s Aladdin”!
During the scene when Aladdin frees Genie from his lamp and Genie performs the show-stopper “Friend like Me”, the producers needed several magical effects to happen all at once to visually demonstrate Genie’s magic powers, that’s where we come in! It was a special thrill to watch this scene recreated during the Tony Awards a few years back and when the magic started, we all had a big smile on our face and a wonderful sense of pride to know that we have been able to contribute in some small way to the success of this show.
Recently, when Harry was on a trip to New York, he was invited backstage to see the inner workings of the show and let me tell you, how that company manages to put on a stage show of that quality with style and precision night after night after night…that’s the REAL magic! So, if you’re ever in New York, I highly recommend that you make “Aladdin” one of the things to place on your “Must See” list! When you do, just know that we’ll be there with you, because when it comes to magic, “You ain’t never had a friend like us”!
