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

Jan Rouven puts on a wonderful show featuring some great death defying illusions, a trick out of the past from Siegfried and Roy's show that ran for years on the Strip at the Mirage and during the breaks, there is some well placed humor, dancing, and great interaction with the audience. While many of the illusions are easy to understand... More

Many magicians show films of some of their work. Why? I can watch that on TV. Not Jan. This is a 100% live show that we found extremely entertaining. The dancers added a very pleasant twist. Jan has a pleasant personality, was funny and performed some great acts. The best was the "lady in a box". I would see this... More

This is the worst magic show I have ever seen in Vegas. The dancing was not coordinated, dancers missing steps, etc. and the illusions were generally poor. He only had a couple of good tricks and the rest was generally boring.

Advised the manager we were on honeymoon and instantly got upgraded to the best seats in the house! The show itself was good, but broken up with the dancing element ... Jan managed to get my husband on stage! Genius!! The illusions themselves are breathtaking - still scratching our heads over a couple of them! Well worth a visit, especially... More
