Alan Hudson – Magician or Superhero? (Alan Hudson)

By | Published on Friday 16 August 2013

Alan Hudson plays a superhero, but not one who flies or fights crime. The idea is that his magic tricks are his super powers. He switches cans of coke “without touching them” to demonstrate super speed and upturns a bottle of water without spilling a drop to show power over the elements. Hudson engages the audience reasonably well and, while some of his illusions feel like a new gimmick on an old trick, some are genuinely intriguing. Though the show is well-structured and certainly good fun, it is not quite funny or impressive enough to be a truly great show. That being said, it’s nice to see a magic shows with an overarching theme. Overall, a good family show.

Just the Tonic at The Caves, until 25 Aug (not 13), 4.40pm.
