FLAWLESS PERFORMANCE, SPECTACULAR EFFECTS

I gladly gave this show a standing ovation. The illusionists were incredible. The escapologist had me on the edge of my seat as he attempted Houdini's underwater escape from handcuffs and shackles with only a bobby pin. The warrior did a crazy scary trick (I'll try not to spoil it) with a young couple which had a spectacular ending. The futurist did an incredible bit with multimedia and illusion. The inventor might have been the weakest of all of the performances, but definitely the number where Dan Sperry reaches pulls a live cockatoo out of nowhere was the most surprising to me. And there's more... I laughed, I applauded, I enjoyed every minute of it. I'd see them again in the future.

SUPERB

Went with no expectations. Was on the edge of my seat almost the entire time. These illusionosts are amazing. Colin will keep you spellbound,. Dan will make yioi wonder how. The emcee is a hoot. No matter how closely I obsetved I jist could not figure out a thing. Truly worth seeing.

UNDERAPPRECIATED...

This was a fabulous show and worthy of multiple standing ovations. Unfortunately, we as the audience simply take their skills for granted and believe they are traditional actors. When in some cases they are performing some death defying acts, like the water cell. The entire production is family friendly and moves at a great pace, keeping the audience engaged and entertained. i honestly could not believe i had been sitting in my seat for an hour when they broke for the intermission. Folks please buy a ticket and reward these performers. Well done...

GOOD SHOW BUT SOME FLAWS

A wonderful concept, great for kids and magic aficionados. One problem is some of the magicians do tricks you have either seen done by other magicians , eg. David Blaine, or on YouTube. Some of the illusions and tricks were truly amazing, yet others, like the Houdini style upside down escape in the water trick are just tired. Yes, amazing but just been done so many times before you are numb to the difficulty. Overall a fun night but high prices tickets made me think twice about awarding more stars.
