Violence: Frequent “magic” acts involve dangerous and easily mimicked situations including drilling a hole through your skull with a power tool, laying on hot coals, cutting yourself with a knife and pounding a nail with your forehead. In another scene two men fall to the ground from a cage that is dangling a crane—one lands on top of the other resulting in injuries. Characters verbally argue. A man magically places a small dog in another man’s pants.

Sexual Content: A man uses his performing credentials to easily bed women; in one scene we see the beginning of sexual activity. An unmarried man and woman have sex; again we see the beginning of this activity. After a dog is placed in his pants a man makes a sexual remark. Other sexual remarks are heard. Stage crew undresses a woman as she is rushed into a costume—we see her in underwear.

Language: The script includes one sexual expletive, other scatological terms, moderate and mild profanities along with terms of deity.

Drugs/Alcohol: An unnamed drug, derived from a leaf, is used as part of a magic act to put an entire audience to sleep. A character drinks to deal with stress. Social drinking is seen.
