Each month David Neubauer brings us an update on all the magic which is being performed in Las Vegas, Nevada, where there is more magic than anywhere else in the world. Almost every magician aspires to perform at least once in Las Vegas. And be sure to check out the Websites given too, to make sure of days the shows are open, times, days they are "dark" (closed), and especially extra shows (such as New Year's Eve). Thanks again, Dave, for compiling this list. YOU should thank him, too.
