Michele, Amelie, and Romina

Michele and Amelie perform an outstanding hand-balnce act. Seen here with their daughter. They worked together with Jason.

 
 

Noriko and Romina say, "hi" to one of the stars of the show.

Noriko was our main contact at the theater. She is a hard worker, and very helpful. We miss her.

 
 

Lucky number seven...

Elizabeth, Jason, Amelie and Romina

 
 

We're too sexy for these shades!

 
 
 

We will catch you!

 
 
 

Ta-da...

Michele and Amelie are amazing

 
 

Black Rain.

If you have seen the movie "Black Rain" you may have seen this actor. In the movie, he was in the Japanese Mafia.

 
 

Osaka is great to see at night!

 
 
 

It is as bright as Las Vegas!

The streets are busy even at night.

 
 
 
 
 

Kampai!!!

We always found time for parties with friends.

 
 

Just like home!

Well, almost.

 
 

This was our farewell dinner :o(

It was sad, but so much fun!

 
 

We received big bouquets of flowers after our last show.

 
 
 

Mamma Chika

She was a wonderful lady. She was the "Guest House" Mamma. Mamma took very good care of us. Thanks Mamma. We miss you!

Crystal Visions

Jason is about to transform this little bunny into a beautiful assistant. Don't blink!

 
 
 

The bunny has turned into one of Jason's beautiful, magical, assistants. WOW!

 
 

Fly with me!

Jason has an audience member feeling a little light in the head. Look mom, I am floating!

 
 

Ta-Da!!!

Jason striking a pose, to a well deserved applause(Vogue)...

 
 

C Thru U a puzzling, cutting edge, illusion.

One of Jason's beautiful assistents sits in small box.

 
 
 

Once the doors are closed, there is no turning back for her. Jason is looking through a cylindrical tube. He is about to impale the top section of the box with it.

 
 
 

The tube is in

 
 
 

Jason is reaching through to show the absence of anthing tricky.

 
 
 

A second tube is slid in from the side. This time through the bottom section of the box. (I wonder if that hurts?)

 
 

You want more?

As if the tubes and a blade are not enough, Jason then removes the bottom of the box. The audience can now see through the tubes, AND the vacant space where the assistan's body was. Is she invisible?

 
 
 

Jason revolves the illusion to show all sides, and angles, where did she go? Is she OK?

 
 

I can see through you!

Jason is behind the box looking through the tubes as the audience.

 
 

WOW!

When everything is returned back to normal, the assistant reappears unharmed!

 
 

A rose for me?

With a wave of his hand, Jason makes a beautiful rose appear. Awww...

 
 

The fastest illusion in the world!

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

In you go!

 
 
 

Handcuffed and tied in a sack.

 
 
 

ONE, TWO...

 
 
 

Three!

 
 
 

Jason manages to find himself in her place.

 
 
 

Um... I hope you have the keys?

 
 
 

Is that the key in your hand?

 
 
 

Thank you, and good night!

 
 
 

Jason appearing behind the audience.

In a flash of fire Jason vanishes from stage and surprises the entire audience when he is behind them.

 
 

A split second after the fire

 
 
 

The smoke is still rising.

 
 
 
 

Jason making his way back to the stage. Wow what a show!

 
 

Thank you and good night.

Jason has left the building!
