Controversy at the Castle


After we published Celia’s Magic Castle post last week, we received several emails from Bruce Gold, who was concerned that the post painted him as a “villain.” Here is Celia’s heart-felt response:

It appears my previous post detailing my adventures at the Magic Castle has stirred up some distress with the performer I “assisted,” Bruce Gold. Who knew my fear of the stage would materialize into an offended magician? Just to clarify, I had a great time at the Castle. It is a place of mystery and fun, not a torture chamber or breeding ground for villains.

Gold is a charming entertainer (with a good Jewish mother), who could not have predicted that my paralyzing stage fright would be the subject of a public blog post, which was meant only to poke fun at myself.

When writing an opinion piece, you run the risk of offending people, but that was not my intention. I hope all is well on the stage and on the page.
