I loved every minute of this show; and so did my 2 kids. I highly recommend Smoke & Mirrors for every magic--illusion lover out there! Albie's the best!

It was a show for a 10 year old...silly and over the top. Some of his
tricks were good, but the rest was so annoying...expecially the two
young people in the beginning.

Really good show. More than just a magic show also a touching autobiographical tale. I took my 12-year old son, too. He loved it.

Small setting so you get to see everything. Audience participation was required and both my teenagers were chosen. Yeah! Had a great time. Would gladly go again.

8 of us went and we all had a blast. Audience participation is always fun so get there early, run up the stairs and get on the front rows...or send a runner to save you a place. Be ready to be amazed, amused and awake!

A very up-close and personal magic show with a story line. We loved it and had a great time. Still trying to figure out how he did those tricks. It must be magic!

A wonderful show. Very captivating. It's wasn't just another magic show, it was a story. A deep look into his life, his childhood, his father. Yes it was all tied into illusions, but it had a real message. My kids (11 & 14) loved it and understood...continued
