Had a great evening of up-close magic at the Magic Caberet! The magicians did a great job of mystifying us, and the audience participation was fun rather than uncomfortable. One of the more enjoyable events we've been to in a while.

Quotes & Highlights

Chicago’s renowned Magic Cabaret grew out of a desire to perform smart magic in an intimate setting. They have more than met their goal. – Chicago Sun-Times
David Parr and Joe Diamond re-create this golden age in ‘The Magic Cabaret,’ using homely objects like books and light bulbs and (naturally) playing cards to bring their stories of old-time magic to life. The result is by turns funny, surprising, and spooky. But here’s the most amazing part: it really is fun for the whole family, not just the kids. – Chicago Reader
These two rather cool and comical performers not only amaze you with their dexterity and legerdemain, but also keep you amused. – Chicago Lawyer Magazine
Scam artists can humbug us, after all, but these magicians answer their call with a humility that renders us perfectly willing to be bamboozled by their chicanery, eagerly assisting them in our deception. – Windy City Times
