Chicago has always been full of magic and at one point the magicians of Chicago became famous for their particular style. It's an up-close and personal kind of magic that doesn't have the grandiose spectacle that other acts bring to the table, but is every bit as astonishing. In some ways, it's much more fun since the audience is part of the show. The Magic Cabaret brings that golden age of magic, mystery and mischief back to to Chicago audiences hungry for the unusual. In every show, PT Murphy and David Parr present classic conjuring in the Windy City style, using every day objects to bring their stories of old-time magic to life. With an emphasis on audience participation, and liberal doses of humor, spookiness and surprises, the magic cabaret is actually fun for everyone, old or young. Learn More

Maybe I'm suffering from overexpectation, but I was pretty unimpressed. We saw Stoppard's "The Real Thing" some time back and were amazed at how GOOD it was. I was hoping for the same. Press clippings on this show have all been good - but I think I have that one figured out. The main characters are reporters/correspondents so the reviewers (who are part of the press) really liked the show.
Acting was ok. Special note on the younger reporter - this actor was very good - probably the highlight. Everybody else seemed like they were walking through their lines.
Sorry - I'm a big Remy Bumppo fan, but this one didn't do it for me.
