Truly Grand: Boston’s Le Grand David Featured

The Boston Globe provides an excellent retrospective on one of the unique stars of our craft.

As, Le Grand David celebrates its 33rd year, The Globe asks how much longer it can exist.

The show, the theater, the performers, and the audience are an anachronism to a time that may have never existed.

The Globe asked Magic Magazine Editor, Stan Allen to speculate on the show within a show’s future.

That’s a very big question,” he said.  “Le Grand David is very unusual, and the way the show came about is very unusual. There isn’t anything usual about it.  It is as close to Brigadoon as anything in magic that we have.  It doesn’t pack up its tent and go away.”

Like the mythical Scottish village that appears for one day each century, Le Grand David has been a constant but almost ethereal presence in Magic.
