Loved the show and it was very entertaining. Can't wait to see the bigger show once he moves to the new theatre. You can't go wrong going to this magic show.

I wasn’t sure what to expect—especially walking into a very small venue—I was a bit skeptical. But I was pleasantly surprised—it was a fantastic show! We loved it. Clean show with illusions, comedy and a little music—perfect show!

An hour is best. After you get your seats you can leave something to hold your chair if you wanna order from concessions, use restrooms or just look around.
