Las Vegas, Nevada has more magic than any other place in the world. There are full-fledged, all-magic, all-the-time shows, and magic interspersed into other, variety-type shows, and everything in-between. As a way of giving back to the world of magic which has been so good to him, David Neubauer, a full-time professional magician based in Los Angeles, California has been compiling and distributing a monthly update of Las Vegas Magic, for some time. Here is his latest update, for May 2012.
