We really enjoyed the show!! Last minute suggestion from someone in a shop but we were really glad we went. We love magic and shows in general. There are lots of restaurants nearby. There is just popcorn and candy in concessions.

This was our first magic/illusion show and we loved it! My 6 year old was amazed and sat and watched the entire show. Maxwell Blade is entertaining and engaging, well worth the $ for good family entertainment.

Had front row seats. Is a small theater so quite intimate even if sitting in the back. Combines jokes, singing, history, and magic along with bringing up and comers in magic to the stage. Involves the kids in the audience and is very family friendly....More

Maxwell Blade bears a striking resemblence to Elton John,,,and plays the piano and sings too. His magic is entertaining and I especially liked the way that he involved the kids in the show. The show includes close magic as well as large, involved pieces. Maxwell...More

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.

Maxwell usually has all shows on Fridays and Saturdays. He does have a website for reservations, but you can buy tickets at the door one hour before show time. Tickets run about $20.00 for adults and $15.50 for kids. You... More
