Boy, you gotta love that small, Napoleonic Frenchman and grand illusionist! Just spent a pleasant morning enjoying about ten of his presentations on Patrick Sebastien’s “Le Plus Grand Cabaret du Monde”. Did you know that Dani Lary has closed each month’s program there with a fresh illusion for the past twenty years? That’s quite an accomplishment!
Yes, he’s very much into boxes and cabinets, dim lighting and fog, vanishes and transformations, but then, which illusionist isn’t? I love the gorgeous scenes and ornate props, the playfulness of his crew, the music, and the romantic moments incorporated. Not to mention the array of classic cars used in some illusions, or his appearing steam train.
