This weekend, I found my way to the Dickens Parlour Theater for the first time. I was there to see "A Greater Loesser Moment," a musical revue of ~two dozen of Frank Loesser's compositions. The music was terrific - a credit to both Mr. Loesser's talents and to those of the performers. The theater itself was delightful as well: Its... More

In a Victorian home that's been converted to a small theater you'll be dazzled and amazed by the quality of the magicians and mentalists. What fun in how they incorporate the audience and make everyone feel welcome and appreciated. Adults and kids will love it.

The Dickens Parlour Theatre is a small (50 seat?) magic theater just outside Bethany. During the summer months they hold daily show with a revolving cast of top notch magicians. Shows are great for the whole family - not too focused on the kids that adults can't have fun - and not adult where you worry that it's inappropriate for... More

We drove from Rehoboth with a 9 & 11 year old to see this show. All of us loved it! We were completely entertained, enjoyed the showmanship and were amazed at the tricks. We especially liked the after show where the magicians do slight of hand tricks with cards ( at least that is what they used when we were... More

Asi Wind was the most unbelievable Magician we have ever seen. His "tricks" defied logic and were absolutely amazing! We spend most of the evening with our mouths open and a puzzled look on our face. His show after the main show - which was held in the Parlor - was even more unbelievable. This is with him sitting a... More

Dickens Parlour Theatre is the best hidden gem at the beach! My family and I have been coming to Bethany for the past 4 years and just discovered it. It's set back amongst trees and may not look like much from the road but looks can be deceiving. It has an elegant, old-school Vaudeville feel to it. The theatre is... More

Attended performance 7/15. Because it was raining, the audience assembled in the parlour prior to the performance. Crowded and not enough seating for all. Since a broken bottle or glass in the theatre could be hazardous, the staff provides paper/ plastic containers for patrons to take their unfinished drinks/ coffee into the theatre. This is our third time here, and... More

I just returned from Brian Curry's magic show at Dickens Parlour. I took my five year old son and we had an amazing time. We got there just in time to go into the show. The hosts could not have been nicer. They bagged up some complimentary popcorn for my son, which won him over immediately. We were both apart... More

Off the beaten path (20 minutes from Rehoboth) in Bethany Beach, this theatre has national magicians. I must preface this mediocre review to say the hosts and magician Max Major were GREAT! There is a café that offers drinks and dessert prior the show. Although we didn't have time to have dessert in advance of the performance, we ordered drinks... More

Went to see Brian Curry recently with kids, who was excellent. Very intimate attractive theater with excellent magic performers. Performers will frequently chat with the audience before and after the show. Unique thing to do at the beach with children. Worth it.
