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. ... 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... 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.... continued

Maybe I was expecting too much, it was just o.k. and plausably entertaining.
The one stand out was the Rabbit. Overall, the performance did not live up to it's hype.

Started off a little slow but got better. The oracle was the best part. It was freezing in the theater so be prepared.

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