After awing audiences on television and in enormous live shows in Germany, France, and Switzerland, magician Jan Rouven brings his caravan of high-caliber stunt equipment to the U.S. for a daredevil performance that Pocket Vegas dubbed one of the city's top 10 shows. With the assistance of five glamorous dancers, the magician squares off with death and disarray in acts such as the Bed of Death and Fire Spiker before successfully sawing a top hat in half. As hit songs such as Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" and Katy Perry's "E.T." set the stage's dramatic energy to music, audiences vicariously hold their breath during the Water Tank, in which the illusionist struggles to free himself from a clear cube of H2O. In Hand Stab, the master of suspense dares an innocent audience member to play Russian roulette with a knife. Praised by the Las Vegas Review-Journal as "convincing" and "refreshing," Rouven jauntily dodges knives, blades, and the shadow of Merlin, under which all magicians toil.
