For the 2019 Melbourne Magic Festival, a new show concept of ‘Secret Showcases’ was introduced. These showcases are in a theatre with limited seating and each show occurs only once – making these special shows exclusive and fleeting. One such show was “The World Awaits You” performed by Lachlan Wilde.
This show was so enjoyable and a real treat to watch. The audience even had the chance to do their own collective card trick which was very fun to be a part of and enhanced the concept that we were all on this journey together in the same moment. Some pieces of card magic were quite impactful, with rich storylines and I enjoyed Lachlan’s use of silence and tension in other moments. Lachlan himself looked like he was enjoying sharing his magic with the audience and watching our reactions, which is always a good to see. Lachlan’s a talented, confident performer and is kind to his audiences so he’s definitely one to watch.
VERDICT: The world indeed awaits all of us and a fun night out awaits you if you attend a magic show by Lachlan Wilde.
*Disclaimer: I attended this show as a guest of the festival
