Excellent show... Go see it. Good for kids (we brought our 7&9 year olds), like a previous reviewer, there were only 2 curse words near the end of the show. Wonderful illusions that still has been wondering.... how!

Old but well done tricks. (I'm not comfortable with using birds or any
animals in acts.) Too much talk - some of it unsuitable for the younger kids there. The "big balloon head" routine went on too long.
Good juggling. Good projections tying...continued

really was fun. there's plenty of street parking. definately i recommend it.

The show had humor. Albie Selznick is a wonderful performer. He makes the show interesting and keeps your attention all the time.

The staging, acting and illusions were excellent, and the small venue made the experience even better. Albie Selznick's performance draws the audience in throughout. The show flagged for me a bit during the Oracle segment, which seemed like a...continued

The theatre is really small, It holds approximately 40 people. The show was more of a play with some magic. The magic was great but would have preferred less talking and acting and more magic since it was a magic show.

Fun evening out. Small art gallery to make time while the show starts. Easy to park close on the street. Restaurants close by e.g. by Burbank. The show wasn't just magic trick after magic trick but had a story behind which made it flow really...continued

Fun show full of great magic. Excellent performance by Albie Selznick. Intimate theatre setting with lots of audience participation. My 11 year old son loved it. Highly recommend.

he packs a lot into the 90 minutes, but it's a bit unpolished - the humor is flat because it's not set up well. If the magic were set up better, it would wow the audience more.

I went in thinking it would be a magic/comedy show - and I did thoroughly enjoy it - but I think it should have been advertised as more of a one-man show involving magic. Much more biographical than I expected, it tells his life story and he plays...continued

It was a perfect evening. We had dinner and drinks at the Ecclectic Wine Bar and Grill and then walked over to the Road Theatre. First come first serve as far as seats (not assigned). The theatre is small, personal and casual. My bf and I...continued
