Not since Cirque du Soleil have aI enjoyed a show this much! Small theatre. Show is an hour and twenty minutes, and REALLY, REALLY FUN. The magic is CRAZY. My friend and I are still trying to figure out some of the stuff he did—plus, there’s this whole story about how he grew up wanting to be a world-famous magician, and how he had to go through all these levels at the Magic Castle. A lot of funny stuff too, he played around with the audience a lot, very off-the-cuff, but he worked it into the material somehow. This was like a comedy-magic-hour—it gets serious for a few minutes towards the end—which was very moving actually...but then it’s back to fun. SO GOOD. My sister is coming to town in a couple weeks and I am bringing her.
Quotes & Highlights
- "The magic tricks — whether transforming objects, levitation or demonstrating telepathic powers — are first rate, and executed by Selznick and his assistants ... with matter-of-fact assurance that belies the intricate sleights-of-hand involved. What most distinguishes Smoke and Mirrors, however, is the personal connection that Selznick explores between his life and his art ... Perhaps his greatest trick of all: making boredom completely disappear." --Los Angeles Times
