It was a quick typical show - not really a magic show but more just fancy acts and juggling. If you've seen one, you've seen them all. The descriptions of the performers did not match the quality of the performance. Very interesting venue though.

Michael Bonacci was very entertaining, especially for the kids. But there definitely were some tricks that stumped the adults as well!

I really enjoyed it. The theater is very intimate and well designed. My son who is 8 had a very nice time. I'm looking forward to checking out the adult shows as well.

  • *August 12 & 19, September 9 & 30, 2012: Mike Bonacci *

Magician Michael Bonacci will entertain you with his unique style of magic and comedy for ages four and older. He will be using classics such as the linking rings, and plenty of audience participation. A child will become the magician performing with magical wands and balls. Magic will be performed with the letters of the alphabet and the appearance of a dove along with the magical appearance of a rabbit. It’s a fun-filled extravaganza of magic and entertainment second to none. Michael Bonacci has been working as an entertainer and a magician for more than 40 years in and around the Philadelphia area.

August 26 and September 23, 2012: Mike Miller

Mike Miller combines magical effects with his imaginative sense of humor, resulting in a delightfully clever show that you will remember for a long time to come. After seeing the show there will be no doubt in your mind that deception can be fun. Mike is the past international president of the Society of American Magicians, a title once held by Harry Houdini. Live animals and audience participation makes you part of the magical experience. Your kids will love Mike, too.

September 16, 2012: Jeff Carson

Come spend an afternoon with magician/comedian Jeff Carson. Magic, comedy, juggling and audience participation combine into what promises to be a show you won’t soon forget. Jeff Carson has performed on cruise ships, in casinos, and at theme parks for the last 25 years. He brings his bag of tricks and special brand of humor to Grasso’s Magic Theatre. It’s a fantastic show for the whole family. Don’t miss it!
