So lately, in addition to starting our fundraising campaign, casting, and getting all of our paperwork in order, I’ve done some research as well. This particular research trip involved visiting Los Angeles; the Skirball Community Center. They have an exhibit up about Houdini, so I couldn’t resist. It was really worth the trip. They had a 1920s day, encouraging people to dress up and come down to have a picnic and see the exhibit, so we did.
Honestly, the exhibit is pretty cool. But don’t take my word for it. There are some reviews out there that say the same thing. Unfortunately, they don’t allow photos in the exhibit, but there was a wealth of paraphernalia about magic: posters, costumes, props, automatons, and so on. Totally worth the trip.
