    O day and night, but this is wondrous strange!


    And therefore as a stranger give it welcome.

    There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,

    Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

    I do think it’s very odd, though, to think a stage magician would possess magical powers. Presumably there would have to be two classes of stage magicians, then: one class that deceives people with illusions and another that simply uses actual magical powers. It would be much harder to do the work of the former!
