A great show with exceptional acting and magic. We were stunned how many of the magic acts were pulled off. An enjoyable experience.

The magic was great. I also think that the play was a bit too long, it could've been shortened at least by an half hour.I don't know where it should be shortened but it was too long, that's my only complaint.

This show had it all. The actors were good and the magic was fabulous. The only part of the evening that wasn't five stars was the chairs. Overall this was a wonderful evening.

What a talented cast! It's nice to enjoy small theater. The show was very creatively staged with lots of magic and surprisingly good original music and singing.

It was only a preview show so they stopped the show to make sure things went well. The magic was great but the show was still too long.

Magic tricks and mayhem combine with mesmerizing
physical feats to create a very unique evening at
the theater. The costumes and live music add to
the livley performance.

The show was a bit long and the acting was so so. Bess was great! And the french guy. The magic was for sure the best aspect of the show.
