UPCOMING SHOWS PETER SAMELSON Friday, September 8 @ 8:00 PM Saturday, September 9 @ 8:00 PM Peter Samelson insists that he doesn’t do magic; he only helps people to see it. He is an illusionist/enter- tainer/philosopher, blending simplicity and sophisti- cation as he provokes thought and inspir es wonder. Since my last article, my partner Marty and I have been working feverishly to open the Smoke & Mirrors Magic Theater. I just read my last article and see that I was calling for a July opening. We missed that date but we settled on August 18th as the opening day (18 is a very lucky number I am told). With a date in mind we booked two wonderful performers Will Fern for that date. Con- struction crawled along at what seemed to us a snail's pace as my landlord worked on his project of redoing the front of the building to make our theater ADA compli- ant (handicap accessible). For over a month, the only way we could get into the building was by scaling a ladder in front. The outside project which should have taken two weeks to complete is still not finished as I write this. Nothing we could do about it so we focused on getting the insides done.
