WE WENT ON A SUNDAY AND THE ROOM WAS SOLD OUT, SO PLAN AHEAD.
THE SHOW WAS FUNNY, ENTERTAINING AND AMAZING ALL AT THE SAME TIME.
EXCEPT FOR A COUPLE OF "CUSE WORDS" AND JUST A COUPLE....THE SHOW
IS SUITABLE FOR ALL AGES

Albie Selznick was amazing and put on a unique show. Bravo!! My son and I had a great time. I would highly recommend catching his SMOKE AND MIRRORS performance. I wasn't crazy about the venue yet, it wasn't bad by any means.

Albie Selznick is an amazing magician and his show was inspirational too! He tells his story of how a childhood dream becomes a reality. It's a must see! I've gone twice!!

I saw this show 2 years ago at the Fringe and it was a good show then, but it's become a great show since. Paul Millet's direction has tightened the show up and made a seamless production interweaving magic acts with Albie's personal story of...continued

A magician's coming of age story told via magic tricks and illusions. It tries to walk the razor thin line between being for adults and being for kids and does not always succeed. Ultimately, it feels like it is for kids who can handle a...continued

The show was OK....not great. Albie Selznick was very good. He should have been the only person on stage....all supporting characters
were weak at best. Not the best show I have seen through Goldstar.

There was less magic than expected, and more childhood storyline.
Parking in the area was extremely difficult as the usual parking structure
had closed.

I took my friend for his Xmas present. He's wanted to go to the Magic Castle, but I don't have connections to get in. This guy is a magic castle magician though, so I surprised him with this!

Well let me say it was BETTER than my Magic Castle...continued

It was a lot of fun, and quite impressive. Frankly, more impressive than I thought as the venue was a hole in the wall. Recommended.

This was a good show, but uneven. Some of it was amazing and I liked how the show was framed with Houdini's life. There was a pre-show that put my group on edge. The shrill female magician was very difficult to sit through. We were worried that it...continued

Smoke & Mirror's was an enjoyable & entertaining show! We had a disabled person in our party and the staff at The Road Theatre were very accomodating and a great group of people.

We enjoyed the show of performers with high energy and clever
magic. Youthful abandonment in the opening act seemed a tad amatureous however came across charming.
The lead magician was great but totally lost us when he veered off into his self...continued

Definitely a show to see and enjoy. It was an interesting weave of stage and audience experiences rather than just a series of magic tricks. Fun presenters worked together as as team to make it a fun evening at the theater. We spend the time...continued

Great time. Small venue allows you to really see the actors/magician. Very nice personal touch as the lead and actors shake hands and thank the patrons when they leave. I was talking about it for days. Would definitely recommend this to anyone...continued
