Illusionist show voted best in 2015

I'll admit I tried figuring out how these illusions were happening. Well . . . that never occurred and I am baffled. This was my first live show of this type and I enjoyed it... read more

Criss who? I saw Jan this past week and I have to say it was one of the best shows I've ever seen. I really love illusionists and he had everything that other illusionists I've seen don't have. He was incredibly charming, charismatic, but most importantly he was authentic. He is so grateful for what he has and he took... More

This show had been recommended to us by several people once we arrived in Vegas and we did not know what to expect. But we truly understand now why Jan has been voted best magician 2015. We bought our tickets from TIX and bought VIP so we wouldn't have to queue at the box office at the Tropicana before the... More

Saw Illusions last fall & made a point to return. Very entertaining show with excellent supporting cast. New location @ Trop is much better for viewing / seating

Last night four of us attended Jan Rouven' show and were pleasantly surprise at the quality of the performance... i had read reviews about his "Illusions" was a bit perplex but as soon as he came on stage his great persona overcame my doubts. He performed non stop for 80 minutes and was funny, witty and charming. His illusions were... More

Had read mixed reviews on the shows but we decided to take a chance. The show was wonderful. The music and dancing were OK, nothing outstanding. The magic/illusion show was great. Still trying to figure out how he did some of the tricks.

Sorry but the performance was mediocre at best. The performance was very awkward and the humour cringe-worthy. Dance acts are bad and unecessary. Sorry Jan but we were completely underwhelmed and disappointed with this show.

The star, Jan Rouven is quite the entertainer! Sometimes he mispronounces English words with thick German accent, but then again, that could be part of the act. His first few illusions were kind of cheesy but the got better and better throughout the show. In combo with his illusions is a lot of toe tapping music and his cast of... More

Jan Rouven is an entertainer extraordinaire. He performs feats of magic that will make your jaw drop in disbelief. On the night that we went, Siegfried of Siegfried and Roy fame, was in the audience. Jan has an endearing wit and charm and he connects with his audience. He has a good group of dancers and lovely ladies who assist... More
