I attended this show with my fiancé tonight and we were extremely disappointed. We were both so excited to go because we love magic and the reviews were incredible. What a letdown. The tricks were un-original at best. The show moved at a snails pace. The around the world thing was forced. The show was only about 75 minutes long... More

This is a traveling show at least to Phoenix, however as it was in the Biltmore Hotel with parking included, convienant and relaxed. family froendly and close up magic and illusions, friendly and just warm and inviting. The seating was marginal which is expected in a conference room. Value for this type of magic, excellent. I have seen many many... More

I liked it Most of the reviews I read are accurate. Don't go if you want to critique their magic tricks. It's magic it's fun

I have never liked magic/illusion shows, but I decided to go for my husband. I was very happily suprised in more ways than one. I loved Roland and Susan as people and as performers. They are so pleasant, comical, personable, and entertaining! Their show at the Arizona Biltmore was very intimate. They were interactive with audience members, announced birthdays and... More

I came across an online advertisement for this show and it looked interesting so I checked reviews for it. Upon seeing so many happy reviews, I decided to get tickets. Booked the tickets online a couple months in advance with no problem and opted for seats in the front row (you get to view the seating chart and choose accordingly).... More

We attended the show for this past October. This is an excellent and entertaining magic show reminiscent of the traveling shows of old times. What makes this show unique is the humor and the way they engage with the audience. I will definitely recommend this show family and friends.

I don't want to harsh anyone's excitement, but this is basically a magic show with card tricks and a few other sleight of hand tricks. The couple who perform the show do it with a lot of style and flair. But there isn't anything happening up there that you haven't seen before if you have ever seen a magician perform.... More

You cant figure out what you could figure out! The retro feel at the parlor was another great treat to have. I would be coming again with friends.

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!!
