A magic factory cum living loft, full of old furniture, unwashed dishes, unopened mail, unsynchronized clocks that cuckoo wildly, and magicians' props invented by eccentric proprietor Aunt Daisy. . . . That's where Zach goes to stay while his parents are in Europe, and while there he not only wins the school talent contest with an unintentionally comic magic show but also saves Aunt Daisy from tax eviction, urban renewal, and a rival company's spies. Out-and-out escapism, on a more than usually diverting stage.
