We found street parking on Belden - be careful about permit parking only signs.

We loved this show! And I strongly disagree with the person who said the kids would love this! This is NOT a show for anybody under 13!!! That said, the show was smart... continued

Our party of four laughed out loud continuously--these performers truly entertained! The magic was exactly what it should've been: "how did he do that???" A fun night--and thanks to Gold Star, inexpensive too. Highly recommend.
