Fast and flashy. . . The performer enters spinning a tall, upright cabinet. All sides are shown. The front curtain is pulled aside, and in steps the magician to prove the box empty. Out ci.g3.in, the curtain is pulled back. . . Bang ! The curtain flys open and out steps a beautiful gal. Fifteen minutes after the show is over, from behind a small, unnoticed stage door, steps the magician and girl carrying the collapsed cabinet to their hatchback, fuel efficient car. Knowing that, although this show was worked in the round with the audience three feet away, they fooled 'em with this illusion.
Late that night, they arrive at their apartment, again carrying the folded down prop to its final resting place, behind their clothes, leaning against the wall, in the master closet. Sound familiar? Welcome to the 80's and the "New Wave" Modern Cabinet.
I wish I could fold back my clothes and find that old Thayer Modern Cabinet
But I couldn't have even gotten it through the front door.
