I realize that some other reviewers of "In and Of Itself" were disappointed by the fact that there was not a lot of magic in this show, but it was not advertised as a full magic show but rather as a one-man play incorporating magic....More

My boyfriend is a well known magician and creator and he was highly recommended to see this show. However it was a little bit disappointing because it's a high expectation for a show which ends up to be average, too alternative, and with about 4...More

My mother advised; 'if you can't say anything nice, say nothing at all'. However, I feel a public duty to type the following. I splashed out $80 for a ticket that turned out to be $1.06 per minute or $13.33 per 'magic' trick. I attended...More

First, this is not a magic show, and I knew that. It is a one man play with elements of magic incorporated into it. I think it has a very deep message delivered in a very unique way. I certainly enjoyed it. I thought the...More

Extremely disappointed in this "magic show." This show was composed almost entirely of long, drawn out overly dramatized stories. That are thinly veiled attempts to manipulate emotion. Morals of the stories are valid, but if you are looking for something entertainment and magic this show...More

In and of Itself Curse you Steven Colbert. If you had not promoted this play on your show, I never would have known about it. If I had never known about it, I never would have attended. What a waste of time and money. Thankfully,...More

Other magicians said this was great - it was not. During the 90 minute show, there were 4 magic tricks interspersed throughout the show, an excellent display of card dealing and shuffling in the middle, and a great mentalism trick at the end. But the...More

Fascinating and interesting show with some slow spots. Part magic/illusion part philosophical musings about life this show is nothing if not original. There are some lulls but overall an entertaining and worthwhile experience.
