Brett DanielsOn April 1st, Brett Daniel's will open his new show at the Sahara. Presented almost as a broadway production,  Wohscigam (pronounced wo-see-gam) is described as  a historical murder mystery sleight-of-hand magic show. According to an article in the Las Vegas Sun article, the show is based upon an act by turn of the century magician Lester Tiband who was murdered before opening Night. Brett Daniel's says that he has tired of large scale illusion shows and started planning a show that focused more on sleight of hand. Brett goes on to say that the success of recent period piece films focused on magicians as The Prestige and the Illusionist convinced him that he was on the right track during the shows development. “In the last 10 years Las Vegas has opened up to anything new, so long as it has quality,” Daniel's says. “This is a visually based show, very eye-popping with dramatic sleight of hand.”  “The Brett Daniel's Magic Show: Wohscigam,” is staged at 3 p.m. Mondays through Saturday at the Sahara.SOURCE ARTICLE :: Watch out — magician has ‘Wohscigam’ in store for you
