David has always had a fascination with the illusion of cutting a lady in half. "It's amazing how intrigued the public is with this. Of course, the funny line people say to me all the time is: Can you cut my friend in half?"

"I had been doing a lot of research on that and I didn't want to present this in the typical fashion. I wanted something truly unique that no other magician was performing. In 1921, a magician invented the sawing a lady in half illusion. He covered his female assistant from head to toe with a wooden box. Finally, he took a saw and cut the box in half. It wasn't the most amazing trick since his assistant was covered and nobody could see her get cut in half. But, the idea that it left in the audiences mind was the greatest."

"I've always wondered why does the magician have to cover his female assistant? Then I thought, why is the FEMALE assistant the one who is cut in half? Why doesn't the magician cut himself in half?"

"So I've been developing the ultimate magic illusion for my audiences. It took me over 3 years to create and I am very proud of the result. With no boxes to hide anything, I will cut myself into 2 pieces live on stage. Select few who have been invited to watch the technical rehearsals have told me that this is the most amazing thing they've ever seen!"

Haunted Illusions show is perfect for the entire family and features several other original illusions. There are plenty of audience participation moments in the show including one where someone from the audience will vanish into thin air. It is the perfect show for all ages and features computerized lighting, special effects, and possibly even a ghost in the theater!"

$10 tickets are designated for children 12 & under. Regardless of age, everyone in attendance must have a ticket. Bringing infants to any performance is prohibited.
