Part 1: A Voyage to the Real World Working behind a bar for an audience of real people, Eugene Burger makes it clear why he’s one of the world’s most celebrated close-up artists. Then, he’s joined by David Parr to analyze these time-tested routines from Eugene’s actual performing repertoire. Items like his ultra-commercial approach to the Sponge Balls (including his “real work” on breaking them in). You’ll be delighted at the clever method behind David Solomon’s Cutting Ten and impressed with how much excitement Eugene can derive from a Simple Spelling card trick and be drawn in by his presentation for Alan Ackerman’s Gemini Money. And, for the first time, Eugene and David reveal two astonishing new methods for a U.F. Grant classic (which can now be done using the new style bills-or any type of currency) in The 21st Century Bill Transposition. And there’s more, because Eugene also offers special insights into spectator management, audience involvement, and the concepts and theories that transform his magic into something meaningful.
