TRULY MAGICAL !!
Feb 2020
I've always loved magic and illusions and have not been to a live show ever! WOW, did I pick the right one. At the TCA , the seating is right on the stage, so there is not a bad seat. We were first row center, and even that close my husband and I said many time "how'd they do that?" Susan heard me one time and whispered "MAGIC !" I was picked to go onstage for one of the acts, and without giving too much away (so you'll be surprised !) it incorporated my mothers unusual first name, which was written down in a locked box that was on my lap the ENTIRE time. This was so magical and meaningful to me. Susan, Thelma and I thank you ! Also, a nice clean show, so you can bring children of ALL ages. GO, you won't be disappointed.

Night of Illusion and Fun and Mystery
Feb 2020
Really fun show for a date, group or corporate event! Personal touches make the experience memorable. Participants will leave with a neat souvenir ticket and the location was classy! For animal lovers there is a cameo done with an adorable dog that is a part of the act!! Great for kids over 5, families, corporate parties or travelers visiting AZ. Location was near wonderful local eateries and in a safe area. Parking was a breeze!

A show which becomes greater than the sum of all its' parts, must see...
Feb 2020
My wife and I attended their 5:30 show last night as an early evening Valentine's Day gift to ourselves. We were greeted promptly when we arrived and when the theater opened we were shown to our seats up front row seats 11 & 12. The set's presentation was lavish and beautiful. A myriad of details hung before us, each making us wonder how and when they would be incorporated into the show. The show started on time and the magic show began. But calling it simply a magic show doesn't do it enough justice. Yes there were displays of close up magic, some tried chestnuts, many new to me; but there were two other components at play last night. There was the pure showmanship of the pair, a few times they compared themselves to PT Barnum, but I think that does them a disservice. There's was an act of both magic and theater, a work of art well honed through their 800+ shows, but never appearing tired. Thirdly there was the charismatic way that the two of them worked with each other, supported each other individual displays, and the ease with which they worked the crowd to involve them in the very acts of the show. The whole thing came together to become something far greater than the sum of each of their parts. I can not urge you hard enough to go see them. It is truly a worthy experience, especially for any who are fans of magic, vaudeville, carnivals, and a genuinely solid entertaining show.

Carnival of Illusion - Tempe GREAT SHOW
Jan 2020
We attended last evening and throughly enjoyed it! Very entertaining - Magic was wonderful. Has the Old World flare. At Tempe Center for the Arts all seats are ON the stage with the actual performance. Seating is for a smaller crowd which gets you up front and center with the show. Very nice family show. Lots of audience participation too! Highly recommend!!!

A quaint evening of entertainment
Dec 2019
Plan an evening of entertainment of fun, magic and participation. You are with a small group of people stepping back in time when magic and illusion was king. Sit back relax and enjoy the show that you might be a part of.
