We loved this show! And I strongly disagree with the person who said the kids would love this! This is NOT a show for anybody under 13!!! That said, the show was smart and funny. The performers were warm and friendly and the magic was wonderful!...continued

Quotes & Highlights

Best Bet —Tribune-Metromix
“No glitz, just wonder. Instead of watching tigers become showgirls across a massive auditorium, the lucky viewers at this show will watch the simply impossible happen in front of their noses.” -Center Stage Chicago (Recommended – A “Must See” Show)
“This is an evening that shows magic to its best advantage, up close and personal.” -Chicago Reader

Description

In the Golden Age of Magic, during the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries, Chicago was a major center for magic in the United States. Great magicians gathered here to amaze audiences in theaters and parlors, nightclubs and showrooms, restaurants and bars throughout the city. The Magic Cabaret reawakens the Chicago magic tradition and brings it to modern audiences eager for mystery and wonder.
