On June 30th 2018, Fantasma Magic and The Houdini Museum Of NY hosted a once-in-a-lifetime event: Shin Lim live! The America's Got Talent 2X winner and fooler of Penn And Teller's Fool Us did a live lecture and show for the lucky ticket holders and online watchers. Now you can watch super secret archival footage of that great day from the POV of someone standing at the counter and watching! Check out this YouTube link: Shin Lim Takes Over Fantasma for over 2-1/2 hours of rare footage of Shin Lim at Fantasma!
Here are links to Fantasma's press throughout the years! Pix11 NY Times
I would be HIGHLY surprised if the show explained how these fictional magic tricks in The Messiah could be accomplished how they are shown, mainly because the fictional budget and level secrecy required to do something like walking across the Capitol Reflecting Pool is impossible to attain...at least with technology we know about. But hey- Season 1 ended with an “I take it all back” cliffhanger which again implies that Al-Masih probably does have some sort of “gift”, which conveniently wraps up all inexplicable and loose ends.
