"Even among the abracadabra set, Lance Burton is the best. No magic show offers better pacing, more perfectly presented illusions and an experience that can still drive a child mad with wonder. Burton offers magic without irony or cynicism or any attempt to gussy it up for a new generation. Rather, he counts on the ability of his tricks to still amaze. And they do."
— Las Vegas Weekly (cover story VEGAS' BEST 2009)
Lance Burton featured in chapter of "My Favorite Place on Earth"

In a new book from National Geographic called My Favorite Place on Earth (www.myfavoriteplacenatgeo.com), Lance Burton tells about his first visit to Las Vegas – a “magical, mystical place” – when he was only 21.
For the book, award-winning travel writer Jerry Camarillo Dunn rounded up 75 remarkable people – ranging from the Dalai Lama to Will Ferrell to Jane Goodall – and asked them a simple question: What place do you love most in the world?
Their answers range from a lost city in Sri Lanka to the Pasadena Rose Parade to a wild dog research camp in Botswana, from a surfing paradise in Fiji to the Left Bank in Paris.
Lance Burton is joined by such fascinating people as singer James Taylor, astronaut Buzz Aldrin, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, mind-body medicine pioneer Deepak Chopra, actors Morgan Freeman and Natalie Portman, ocean explorer Jean-Michel Cousteau, comic Jerry Seinfeld, sitar master Ravi Shankar, chef Alice Waters, newsman Tom Brokaw, “The Simpsons” creator Matt Groening, writer Ray Bradbury, filmmaker George Lucas, and many others.
