Dale Hindman, at that time President of the Magic Castle in Hollywood, is a perfect stage manager, one you can really trust for a magic show.

Also wonderful invitations …

Next up was the artistry of Omar Pasha. The basic concept of this black art act is well over a century old, yet the modern-day, CD-indoctrinated audience that stalled out of the first-half of the show was in a state of astonishment. A 16 year-old kid at the snack bar said , “That’s the first time I’ve ever seen special effects done live, right before your eyes! That Omar Pasha was cool.”

"MAGIC" magazine, December 2000

There is the exotic : Omar Pasha, with his colorful “black art” from India, creates colorful whimsical black-light illusions of floating boxes, assistants who loose their heads, a poster that comes to life and a leaping candle flame.
