stages Quotes

Two of the best book quotes about stages
  1. #1
    “The third stage is sometimes called the effect, or the prestige, and this is the product of magic. If a rabbit is pulled from a hat, the rabbit, which apparently did not exist before the trick was performed, can be said to be the prestige of that trick.”
  2. #2
    “An illusion has three stages. First there is the setup, in which the nature of what might be attempted at is hinted at, or suggested, or explained.”
