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.

This is an incredible show. Smoke and Mirrors was fun, touching, interactive, and unforgettable. Definitely see this show if you can.

This show is really spectacular. Not only is Albie a great magician, but he's a remarkable storyteller and performer as well. The production design is this marvelous mixed-media spectacle. I highly recommend this show!

This was the best magic show I have ever seen presented! It was funny and intriguing. It was down to earth - real - and awesome..... ALL at the SAME time! This little show, tucked away in a quiet unknown corner of Lankershim, is a show - not to be...continued

We loved it!!!! It felt like an evening at the Magic Castle; Albie Selznick is an awesome master magician and his story was humorous and mysterious. My kids and I have seen him three times already, and each time is always worth the money. He...continued

A fantastic show. A small and intimate house of about 45 people. The best 90 minutes of entertainment that my wife and I had this year. You will not be disappointed.

A very fun and surprisingly affecting performance. The magic was sometimes great, sometimes only good (perhaps a bit of an off performance?). But more than the illusions, however, it is a show with a tremendous amount of heart. I have often...continued

Albee is a great performer. This show is a lot of fun. I was very moved and the magic was top notch. The end is metaphorical AND mind-blowing!

Albie Selznick's Smoke & Mirrors was great fun as a gift for my friend's birthday. He laughed out loud throughout the show. If you knew my friend, this is a big achievement. Thanks for the magic of the night ... it delivered lots of fun!

Disappointed. The show is about his journey as a boy to become a Magician. The acting and story line was boring. I would have preferred more magic and less childhood flashbacks. I saw Ivan Modei and his show was amazing, fun, and truly a night to...continued

Enjoyed the magic but too much talking. The whole "when I was a kid" thing was too long and boring.
