Off to Vegas...

This morning I'm gassing up the Humber and heading to Las Vegas, where I've very excited to see David Copperfield's show at the MGM Grand and get my first look at his legendary International Museum and Library of the Conjuring Arts. David's museum is currently undergoing a massive expansion, so I will getting preview of what's to come. Including, presumably, an expanded Houdini section, which we now know will include a few pieces of furniture.

I'll also be dropping in at the original Houdini's Magic Shop in New York, New York, a museum in itself, and whatever else I can fit into this quick trip. A stop off in Needles maybe?

Anyway, I'm excited to share all that I can when I return. I'll be tweeting some photos and whatnot @HoudiniWild.

The original photo above is in the Jim Rawlins collection.

UPDATE: Into The Copperfield Zone Part I | Part II



  1. If possible, can you email me "David's mailing address? I found a letter after my Mom's passing for David Copperfield." I will ALWAYS remember his kindness to my Mom at the SAM Annual Convention on our "100th" Anniversary. He stopped everything he was doing on the stage and allowed me to take a photo of him with her in from of 1300 people! Both of us ALWAYS held him in high regard. I hope one day, "he will allow me to see his collection." Keep up the GREAT work youDavid, and, I do for the "art of magic!" Benjilini

  2. Wow. Can't wait to hear all about it!

  3. I'm back from Vegas and the experience was phenomenal! I'll going share all in a two-part post, the first of which I'll try my best to get up this weekend (when I embark on yet another big Houdini adventure). Stay tuned!
