The new show will open July 1, and he will be adding “three or four major pieces” to it. And yes, apparently “major pieces” means animals.
Meanwhile, he’ll be performing right up to the very end of the Sahara – his last show there will be May 15. Not that he’ll be going out with a thanks-Sam-Nazarian bang – he said there won’t be anything out of the ordinary for the last show, other than saying goodbye. Hearing the tales from Sahara employees about how they’ve been treated, we’re not surprised, either.
Big props to Vegas Chatter for getting the scoop. Riviera’s last foray into magic was the Scarlett’s cult nude/magic review Abra-Ca-Sexy. No word on if Thomas will slot into the same theate
Frpm the Magic Newswire: NEIL PATRICK HARRIS :: AMA PRESIDENT
The AMA By-Laws and Standing Rules provide for the naming of a new President when a President does not finish his term. The Vice President is automatically named President. Accordingly, Neil Patrick Harris is President of the AMA until the end of his current term (March 2012).
At its regular meeting held Tuesday, April 12, 2011, the Board of Directors discussed possible replacements for the vacancy on the Board created by the resignation of Robert Lamoureux. Due to the number of possible candidates under discussion and the importance of this action, President Neil Patrick Harris suggested that the Board schedule a Special Meeting to be devoted entirely to interviews and a full and complete discussion by the Board. Although the AMA Bylaws state that a replacement be appointed at the next regular Board meeting, it was the sense of the Board that it should devote more time than was available on April 12, 2011 to reaching this decision. The Board scheduled a Special Meeting for April 27, 2011 for this purpose. Any Magician Member wishing to be considered for this position should send a resume to Rich Cowley, Secretary, to be received not later than April 20, 2011.

“When Lance [Burton] heard I was in the hospital, he came over and slept on the floor beside me. All night long. He followed me to surgery. And when I got out, there were 20 magicians in my room to misdirect me from the pain.”
I know we were all wishing the best for Gary when we were at World Magic Seminar and I am glad that he is home.
