LOVED IT! I wish I could give this 10 stars. Dennis did some amazing things that just left me awestruck. This is a small, intimate venue, only holding about 20 people in the audience. The magic is up-close and personal, and the audience...continued

A wonderful evening of mystifying magic. Setting is ideal for clost-up magic and Dennis is terrific. Offer of complimentary wine or beverage was a nice touch to the evening. Good for families.

if you're wondering about bringing tweens/teens, bring them! they're welcoming to kids, and kids will love the show. I took two, and there were two other kids in the audience for our show (the early show)

Entertaining but similar to show I saw him do a few years. It would have been nice to see some new tricks.

This was a great night. Initially, you meet in Potters Lounge on the main floor then about 5 minutes before show time are taken up a couple of escalators and a flight of stairs to the "magic parlor." (None in our group couldn't do stairs, but...continued

We took our 12 year old and she was amazed she got to go up and help out which was why we liked the show. We like that it was intimate enought that everyone there could get involved. I think it lasted an hour and a half and it flew by. It was also...continued
