How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
The show was aptly named "Intimate Illusions," as I actually bumped into Mr. Amodei in the hallway prior to his performance. The performance took place in one of the smaller ballrooms with a semi-circular stage. Ballroom chairs, dressed in Lycra skirts were placed in 6 rows of 16 chairs each, with a center aisle. A level of loge seating was available also, which offered excellent view of the stage. Mr. Amodei was amazing. I had never seen any of the tricks that he performed. Each was mesmerizing and I'm still stunned. I just don't see any way that what I witnessed was possible. Probably the greatest thing was that he can apparently make fish appear in thin air. You can't keep a fish up your sleeve -- they need water! Yet, this man kept grabbing them out of thin air. Go see this show. It's funny, wildly entertaining, and it'll give your mind an incredible workout. My friend and I can't stop talking about it!! Ivan Amodei is handsome as hell and the finest magician I've ever seen!
