Being able to see people doing absurd things on social media every day has truly diminished our appreciation for people doing absurd things in front of live audiences — magicians have become one of those slighted professions. But there’s nothing like seeing someone emerge from a sword-filled coffin unscathed or inexplicably levitate, and Lance Burton’s been doing that sort of thing on the biggest stages for over four decades. He’s rolling into Northern Quest to bring his long-running Vegas act to the Inland Northwest this Friday, and no YouTube video does justice to his handiwork. Some things need to be seen to be believed. Others you don’t need to understand, you just go with it. This show will definitely be both.
