Excellent showmanship and interesting stories. Very intimate. It's chill, not high energy like some other magic shows.

Venue in the small and historic Chancellor Hotel was perfect, you were transported back to the Belle Epoque of late 1800's San Francisco. Mr. Anthony is a gifted story teller and the magic tricks were somewhat standard but very skillfully...continued

Located in a dining room of a hotel. The decor and act was entertaining. I was expecting a traditional magic act. One man, several aliases. Few parts were a bit corny but entertaining. Some audience participation encouraged.

A wonderful way to learn about some intriguing San Francisco history (we are native San Franciscans) and see some very impressive magic at the same time. We had a wonderful time. Bravo! Job well done.

Sat up close and could not figure out the tricks. My girlfriend participated in one trick and could not tell me more than what I saw from 10 feet away.
Walt was very entertaining and had a great stage presence.

The event was well attended and originally scripted. Interesting story telling. One member of the party is hard of hearing and the performer needed to better project his voice.

Very personable. He engaged the audience as a group and by calling on people to participate. Nice mix of old San Francisco tales we had never heard before and magic tricks. Lots of fun!

Unusual venue - felt like being invited into someone's...continued

A low-key evening-good story-telling technique but I wished there was a little more magic!

I've been to a few magic shows in san francisco and enjoyed them immensely. This was not one of them.
The storytelling wasn't great, the performer kind of rambled on about different characters in san francisco, but his pacing just made it hard to...continued

It's a small quaint show. Enjoyed the show with my mom while visiting SF. We had a couple of happy hour drinks prior to the show in the lounge. It's close to Union Square where we were staying and he did interesting magic show like a small...continued

We saw Criss Angel in Las Vegas last month, and this show was 1000 times better! Walt's show is so charming, intimate, and informative. It's like a conversation about San Francisco history with great magic sprinkled throughout. There were NO BAD...continued

This isn't a Vegas style show. There are no tigers, showgirls, motorcycles, or fireworks. However the show is still entertaining and memorable.

The show is in a relatively small room, so it up close with no bad seats. The show is a mixture of...continued

An intimate show with magical stories about the city and characters of San Francisco. Don't expect a David Copperfield experience or you will be disappointed. On the other hand if you want to be taken back in time this will be the show for you. ...continued
