It was entertaining. Audience involvement was really good. Neil does a great job keeping the attention. I was hoping there were more haunting stories

The show was good, but the setting was a bit odd.
I knew from another review that there was no place to put your drinks in the performance area.
Several drinks were spilled because people had to put them on the floor.
Some kind of tables would be nice.

The show itself was fun, several of the tales told were more of urban myths than ghost stories (several cities have their own devil baby and Resurrection Mary stories) but they are presented well.

My only real criticism of the show, was that it went a bit long, this could be an issue if you had plans afterward.
Was fun though.

Really fun interactive show. Great way to spend a Friday evening. The host was very good. The magic was a little basic, but the overall experience was very enjoyable. Good stories. Great audience participation. At $25 per person including 2 free drinks, it was definitely great value for the money.

I was bowled over at Supernatural Chicago. I am a 'magic geek' and have seen effescts large and small, some done with elan, and some just done. Neil Tobin is a stellar representative of the ancient and arcane arts. The show and Neil are engaging, thought-provoking, laced with bon mots and 'whaadyaknows' about Chicago and Excalibur history. It is easy to be seduced by the way Neil creates a otherwordly environment, and the legerdemain is seamless. Bravo, bravo and I need to go again. - Lisa A

Saw this in 2012. My friend and I were excited to see this; we were looking for a fun, probably a little cheesy, show. Plus majority of reviews were positive and the fact you got free drinks was a bonus. Unfortunately we were very disappointed, even with the two free drinks in us. The magic was a little weak and the stories were not very scary or funny. Sorry, but I'd say pass on this show.

A lot can change in a year. Live performances evolve over time, so maybe the show we're doing this week would connect with you better than the performance you saw last year. At any rate, I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the show as much as others have. Wishing you the best.
