I thought the magic was really good. The humor was a little forced, and the reference to personal issues was a little overdone. I thought it was a nice touch to personally say goodbye to everyone as we left the show.

This is one of the best magic shows I've seen in a long time, perhaps ever. What makes it so special is that the tricks are neatly worked into a narrative about the magician's life story. Selznick tells of his father's death when he was nine,...continued

Some GREAT magic tricks, but performer went on and on about the loss of his dad at n early age. Too much and it actually got boring. Made act seem longer. Get some therapy and save your audience.

"Smoke and Mirrors" had some amazing and hilarious stuff. I especially liked the Oracle segment. And the finale is mind-boggling. Some sections dragged for me, but overall the experience was fun and the art gallery in the front section of the...continued

We had a great time. Albie Selznick is one of the most versatile magicians I have ever seen perform. In addition, he relates and interacts very well with his audience. The theatre is small enough that everyone is almost onstage. The storyline,...continued
