The Great Baldini – A Magician's Journey
  • Edinburgh Fringe

The Great Baldini is a magical legend. In the mould of Dickens' Vincent Crummles, Baldini is a relic of the music halls, a theatrical performer of the old school. Here he tells the story of his life through a series of stage illusions " from the moment he began as a child performing on his birthday for his father and his friends, to the climax of his career when he attempts (live on stage) to rival the great escapologist Harry Houdini. A joyously silly romp through magic.
