What If David Copperfield Came to See Your Show!

What would you do if you are about to start your performance, the hall is dark, the audience is seated and suddenly out of the corner of your eye, you see David Copperfield take a seat.

Well, it wasn’t David Copperfield who walked into the theatre on Sunday, when Phil was about to perform, but then again, Phil wasn’t performing magic, he was about to give his Ragtime Show for the Cote St. Luc Library on Sunday, the last of 4  as he had been playing once a month since January, when Chris Barillaro and his mom came in. You may be wondering, who is Chris Barillaro. We know Chris since he was a kid, coming in for magic. He’s not a kid anymore, but he’s still into magic, but not professionally. Professionally, he’s in the theatre… actor, music director, pianist, arranger, singer, and he’s the best at whatever he does. ChrisIn the photo he is on the left in Forever Plaid. Click here to get an idea of what this guy is into. He is incredible. So when Phil saw him come in and sit down at the back of the theatre beside me it was the same as it you were performing and saw David Copperfield come in to see your show.

Phil was completely thrown off kilter. He was making mistakes in pieces he knew inside out and backwards. He was a complete wreck. I turned to Chris and said, “This is your fault, you know.” and he laughed and nodded. By the third song Phil had managed to calm himself and Chris and I smiled. You just never know what’s going to happen in a live performance. So how do you think you would act?

    I would probably invite the star up to do a brief presentation.

  3. This is Phil responding Jack. No way in the world I would do that unless I was absolutely certain I was the better performer.
