I have attended the show previously and loved it, so when I had the opportunity to go again, I couldn't resist. Roland and Susan are fun to watch and extremely talented. The way they engage the audience makes the magic that much more magical! This is a MUST see!!

We had the pleasure of viewing the Carnival of Illusions in the new Tucson Theatre. The venue was small so all seats provided a great view of the stage. With an audience of less than 100 members, one had the feeling of seeing this show in an old Victorian Parlour. Roland Sarlot and Susan Eyed provided a bit of campy... More

I enjoy magic shows and thought I would l like the intimate theater presentation. While the duo of performers were affable, the magic bordered on amateur. In this day and age, tearing and repairing a newspaper is not exactly a new or "wow" trick. For $50 I would expect much more (that's what I paid to see Penn and a... More

I had waited almost a year for this Arizona seasonal show to return to our area to purchase tickets to surprise my husband for our 25th wedding anniversary. He loves magic! Up to this point, this has been, bar none, the BEST EVER event of this type we have been to. It was well worth the wait of its return,... More

My husband and I celebrated our first anniversary with Carnival of Illusion. We had SUCH a great time! We laughed, we were intrigued, we were awed. This is the kind of entertainment ANYone can enjoy for ANY occasion. I did a lot of research on the venue options and no matter where you go, expect an intimate setting with all... More

I just wanted to let you both know what a wonderful experience I had at your show on November 1, 2014. I had flown to Phoenix as I wanted to spend my Birthday with all my family that is living there. We were all trying to come up with some fun things to do and I came across your page.... More

Great 80 minutes of magic and slight of hand that kept me riveted to my seat! The venue is small - holds about 100 seats, so every seat is a good one.

Great date night birthday activity. Very intimate experience. The magicians were great. Loved all the audience interaction. Located at the Biltmore estates so very fancy. Expensive but worth it for a special night out!

My husband booked tickets to this magic show as a surprise and I have to say the show was magical and unexpected. This is not a glitzy Las Vegas show. It is small and intimate (sits about 100 plus people) and lots of fun to watch. I will not give too much away, but the performers were both excellent and... More

I see a lot of Magic shows and this is one of the best i have ever seen. It is in a small room so every one is close to all the action. Do not miss this show and book early as they all sell out.
