The show is a lively, fast-paced combination of Houdini biography and magic acts. I appreciated that the tricks were the same as Houdini's, including escape from a straight jacket, locked box, and the water torture chamber. The supporting cast...continued

The theater is gorgeous! Unfortunately, we would have preferred to sit in the lobby rather than in the actual performance. We had the pleasure of seeing Dennis Watkins, magician and lead in this play, in his show, The Magic Parlour, at the Palmer...continued

Brother of Houdini was very good. He was not enough, though, to stay for the second half, unfortunately. Perhaps it was not so much the show as the show and me together. Just not a good fit. Was waiting for intermission so I could leave. Sold...continued

wonderful. Most of the magic was great, there were a couple of tricks that were ok but for the most part the play was super. Would recommend!

Great magic tricks but way too long and drawn out with the talking. This was more like a play with some magic tricks. If you enjoy plays and magic then I recommend this show. If you are like me and get bored with alot of yada, yada, yada, I don't...continued

This show was fun! I can't believe that such a small company could put on a production like this. Love the intimacy of the staging. This company brings the audience right into the play. This show is campy and may not be everyone's cup of tea...continued

The show was just wonderful. It was an amazing magic show and a well-acted play -- combined. The star, who plays Harry Houdini, was talented at both. The actor who plays his brother Theo was a terrific actor and also had a beautiful voice. The...continued

We all enjoyed the performance. Wonderfully acted and great tricks. We were all trying to figure out the sawing in half trick. The only thing I would recommend is to get there early for seats in front. we had to get up from the back row to see...continued

Entertaining show, but a little too dark for young children. The story was educational and the magic tricks were well-executed. Keep your eyes peeled during the nail trick.

First, it was difficult to see the stage from the top row. They actually told people in the back row to stand up to see some things.
We expected more real magic - Mr. Watkins did a good card trick, some run of the mill magic tricks, but a lot of...continued

Harry Houdini was a great performance!! The show tells the mysterious story of Harry's life. The acting is suburb and the use of lighting, costumes and staging continues the mysterious ambiance of his amazing life. And the magic --- one of a...continued
