Quotes & Highlights

  • “Chicago’s renowned Magic Cabaret grew out of a desire to perform smart magic in an intimate setting. They have more than met their goal.” —Chicago Sun-Times
  • “David Parr and Joe Diamond re-create this golden age in ‘The Magic Cabaret,’ using homely objects like books and light bulbs and (naturally) playing cards to bring their stories of old-time magic to life. The result is by turns funny, surprising, and spooky. But here’s the most amazing part: it really is fun for the whole family, not just the kids.” —Chicago Reader
  • “These two rather cool and comical performers not only amaze you with their dexterity and legerdemain, but also keep you amused.”—Chicago Lawyer Magazine
  • “Scam artists can humbug us, after all, but these magicians answer their call with a humility that renders us perfectly willing to be bamboozled by their chicanery, eagerly assisting them in our deception.” —Windy City Times


This show is recommended for kids 12 years and older. There is some material that might seem scary to younger children.
