Curtis’s show includes Magic, Comedy, some Juggling, and Duo the Dove. As for the show itself, it’s one of those rare presentations that is as enjoyable for the adults as it is for the kids - like one of those good kid movies where the kids enjoy the show on one level and the adults on another - only unlike a kid’s movie it’s live and it doesn’t have a chase scene, a bad guy, or a talking donkey.

The effort was undone by political complexities at home and the fervency of their American opponents.
