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!

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.

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!

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