If you had the opportunity to be at ‘Magicopolis’ in Santa Monica on the 7th of March you have my full permission to skip this blog, You already know how cool ‘Pop Haydn in the 21st Century!’ is! If you weren’t there then I advise you to get your tickets and catch magic’s favorite time traveler when he returns there on April 4th.
‘Pop’ is a creation from the fertile mind of one of magic’s most innovative and accomplished performers—Whit Haydn. At a time where everybody in magic seems to have his own theatrical show this one is a little different. It isn’t just a performer doing an extended version of his show in a hired venue, but is both theatrical and a fully-fledged show. That’s a neat touch isn’t it?

Pop Haydn in the 21st Century! is coming to Magicopolis.
This show, presented March 7th and April 4th in Santa Monica, will demonstrate three Steampunk/Magical devices…but unlike most artistic “replica” devices, these all actually work under scientific test conditions.
This is new for Steampunk, and new for Magic. These are not boxes that do magic, these are magical devices that have histories and stories that are untold in the show, and can only be hinted at:
The Teleportation Device which sends a dollar bill (borrowed, signed, corner torn and serial number noted) into a freely chosen pristine raw egg under scientific test conditions
The Tesla C-2000 a highly modified version of a Tesla Coil, which bends the force of gravity in such a way that a 110 pound girl can withstand with one hand the full weight of any large man in the audience and can not be lifted barefoot from the floor by anyone in the audience.
The Sphere of Destiny, also known as Cleopatra’s Eye, which will answer any question the audience dares to ask with deadly accuracy and insight.
I have followed Steampunk for some time. I was a featured performer at the World Steam Expo in Dearborn for two years. I was a panelist on Steampunk at Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo, and was featured in the book Steampunk Gazette. This is something new in Steampunk.
I am a past Vice President of the Magic Castle, and a six-time “Magician of the Year” at the Magic Castle, and nominated again for Stage Magician of the Year this year. This show is something new in Magic.
It is made for the 21st Century by people who are not originally from the 21st Century.
We have live music, magic, comedy, and the wonders of radio-magnetism.
It is not a reenactment of vaudeville, the medicine show or anything else.
It is History being made in the Present.
Hope you can make it!
It is going to be a hoot!
