We went to our first show last year and had so much fun we went again this year and brought our "bestie". We smiled, we laughed, we participated! I love the smaller audience and the opportunity for eye contact, connection and engagement without embarrassment. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience as well as the magic. Roland and Susan are delightful performers... More

Sometimes it's fun to try something completely new and different that you don't know much about. This was it! A theater experience, but in a very intimate setting (125 audience members the night we went). You really become a part of the show. The illusionists are a very engaging couple that pull off their illusions closely in front of you... More

In many shows it is pretty easy to figure out how the illusions are done, especially if you are sitting in one of the seats on the side, not so here. In fact, it is pretty close to impossible, but let's take a closer look.. The venue that I went to was the Tempe Center for the Arts, a lovely... More

We went to the show on December 19th at the Mesa Performing Arts Center, and were truly mesmerized by the talent. We sat in the front row and had a great time. The illusions were spectacular and they made an extra effort to engage my 13 year old who is interested in magic. Great job! Well worth it!!

My fiancé and I saw the show on October 17th and what a show it was!! The setting is so intimate and the magic is so up close and personal, you think you're on the stage with them. I have told all my friends and they are getting tickets for a future show! I also loved that they would talk... More

Last night, 10/10/15 my wife and I had a great evening with the Carnival of Illusion at the Mesa Performing Arts Center. The intimate setting was fun and we had never seen magic performed so close before. There is also a lot of humor in the show and I found myself smiling the whole time. I would highly recommend seeing... More

The show was part of our 26th anniversary weekend, and it certainly made our weekend special, unique and unbelievably entertaining. I'll definitely be a fan from now on.

Words can not describe the entertaining, magical and amazing show Sarlot & Eyed perform right in front of you; in the most audience friendly stage arrangement ever. Performing an illusion show or is it really "magic" right in front of your eyes. NO special lighting/distractions here, a genuine magic show. You will be amazed as they take you on a... More

My wife and I attended the 8PM performance on June 6th, 2015 and had a wonderful time. Not "big magic", but rather illusions performed up close and personal in an intimate venue. The Victorian theme is carried out well, both performers engage and interact with the audience, and my wife (they decided she should be called "Cupcake") was almost a... More
