Axel Hecklau stopped in New York in August while on the way to Las Vegas for an appearance at Magic Live. During his visit he gave a lecture and performed at the close-up show A Taste of Magic. After the performance Axel was eager to try out the nearby Shake Shack, where we eventually conducted a short interview. Among the topics covered were the nature of the magic scene in Berlin, where Axel lives, his background in magic, the inspiration for his most well-known trick, Newsflash, and what magic is all about, anyway.
