My family had a great time! Our seats were taped off for us and were perfect. The show was entertaining, funny, magical and overall a nice way to spend an afternoon. My sister was selected and was part of Albie's show with The Oracle. Meeting...continued

After reading the reviews, I expected alot more..the tricks were great when done..
the whole show for me had way TOO MUCH talking. He talked so much that it deterred me. I thought it was going to be more of a magic show but it was a one man show...continued

Great show - wonderful entertainment for the whole family. Albie Selznick and his assistants make it a fun afternoon for everyone. GO!

The quaint venue was very cozy, the cast was very talented and my family (including our 8 year old daughter) had a great night out. We thoroughly enjoyed and will go back

The time went by quickly, as there were all kinds of illusions happening throughout the show. I enjoyed the card tricks in the lobby, before the performance.

It was one of the best show ever. Even my 7 year old daughter enjoyed the show so much, she keeps talking about it for days. I recommended the show to my co-worker, and she bought the tickets for her 18 year old daughter and herself. Both me...continued

The show is in a very small theater and so you are up really close to the performance. It was a strange show... had some neat tricks, but overall wasn't all that great. I don't regret going, but that said, I wouldn't see it again.

The show was more a story than a magic show. Most of the magic was things I've seen before or know how it's done. It was somewhat entertaining, but probably not worth the drive from Orange County.

Albie Selznick is a very talented magician, but this is not a good show. Too many gimmicks, way too much "schtick" like the bunny and Albie does not have a pleasant way of speaking. There was way too much yelling and so much distraction that the...continued

The show is great fun. Similar to being in the up close room at the Magic Castle. Loved the magic and the humor.

This was an amazing show! Everyone should see. Very talented cast. Magic was great. Fun story line and very funny too. We were a little concerned it might be kid oriented being a magic show, but it really is great entertainment for adults.

Awesome night of magical fun! But leave plenty of time for parking ~ That neighborhood on a Saturday night is pretty crazy these days!

This is NOT just a magic show. It is basically a one-man play (albeit with assistance from "imaginary" friends) with magic intertwined. Albie Selznick is an effective and engaging storyteller and a pretty awesome magician, juggler, stilt walker...continued

A small black box theatre setting, magic performed and is a part of a darkly themed play, a bit of humor, a bit of mature language. Best for kids 7 and above, the theme (imaginary friend, fears, loss of loved one at a young age, talking to the...continued
