“Great place see magic.”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

a great night of magic, worth the hour drive to see and for a mere $32 to see live magic. Its parlor magic in a intimate setting not far away on a stage. Glenn makes the magic so effortless that one believes it could be real. Great date night or family outing. Can't wait to go back with all my friends. Thank you for a awesome evening...

“You Won't Believe Your Eyes!”
Reviewed 2 April 2014 via mobile

We're still talking about the tricks performed this evening. They're so good, you'll ask yourself, "How the heck did he do that?" This is an extremely entertaining, professionally done show, worth every penny. The audience tonight ranged from age 5 to seniors, and we were all on the edge of our seats. Not only is Mr. Gary talented, but he really knows how to engage everyone. This show far exceeded our expectations! Do yourself a favor and see Mr. Gary perform. You will be amazed!!!

“Great venue for downtown Venice!”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

We were hoping for a fun evening on our first visit to Cabaret of Magic. We left with sore cheeks from laughing and being astonished at some of the illusions! The performance far surpassed what we expected and we highly recommend it to everyone....young and old alike. It engaged everyone to be part of the show. Glen performed amazing illusions, had a great sense of humor, and gave a truly professional show. It's wonderful to have something new and different to take visitors and friends - right here in Venice.

When we went out to dinner after, we realized when we finished eating at 10:30, that downtown Venice was hopping! We had enjoyed a wonderful show followed by a great dinner at Taste of Italy - and we didn't need to have a long drive home.

Put it on your list of must do's!

“Don't waste your money!”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

The performance is held in the magic store. No stage or anything. The person that was to perform wasn't there and
they had a substitute who was basically a mentalist rather than a magician and he wasn't very good. The final blow was when I
decided I would buy a deck of cards to learn some tricks. They
didn't even have a deck of the ones they recommended! Sorry
but don't bother.
