ADLFRINGE 2021 – The Greatest Magic Show – The Flamingo @ Gluttony – 3.5K

Nothing seems to delight kids as much as a proper magic show – featuring real magic! Against this promise of a solid winner, there were pretty great odds of “The Greatest Magic Show”, presented by Showmen Productions, delivering which would enchant young audiences – and deliver they did.

Some minor disappointment was had by those kids who were lucky enough to have also seen CIRCUS, as many of the tricks featured in both shows – but notwithstanding this, the audience was clearly delighted at the magical disappearance, transmogrification and then reappearance of a basketball sneaker, the (safe) disappearance and subsequent reappearance of an adorable bunny rabbit (recently transported, we are told, from Las Vegas), and other impressive magic tricks such as a completely flattened magician.

The show is definitely entertaining, if perhaps aimed at the sub-10 year old spectrum.

Overall, this was a great way to end the 2021 Fringe experience.
