Quotation Mark

Each performer has a specialty of sorts, and all are very good at what they do. The overall approach will be familiar to anyone who watches programs of the Got Talent ilk – fast moving, flashy visuals, loud music. Only thing missing is Howie Mandel – at least in person: Clips from the show occasionally pop up on large video screens.Perhaps the production’s greatest trick is that it never feels like a rip-off or a TV show padded out for Broadway prices. Even Shin Lim’s close-up card tricks play well.

Trent proves a smoothly ingratiating emcee, exhibiting a boyish appeal and enthusiasm that easily wins over the crowd. He's as much dancer as magician, performing elaborate performance art-style routines involving complex video projections. He incorporates a variety of magic styles into his act; some of them don't pay off, such as a lengthy bit in which he runs through the auditorium catching rolled-up pieces of paper thrown by audience members that later prove prophetic. But his technical skill is manifestly evident and his monologue about how he began performing magic as a child, accompanied by old home movies, gives the evening a nice emotional component.
