Most magic venues you are far from the stage but this is a small venue where you are right next to the stage. You can come an hour before the show and meet Peter who does a few trick in a nice pre-show lounge. It is very refreshing to find a venue that is clean and family friendly. The show... More

Best I've seen in a long while. Fun for the whole family. Small seating, probably about 30 people Made it easy to see the stage.

Sorry I have to disagree with all the reviews that call this an astonishing/amazing magic show. Whilst I accept that Peter is a pleasant and amusing performer - we found the magic to be average - without wanting to denigrate all the hard work and training that Peter puts in to learn these tricks. Maybe it's an expectation thing (when... More

What a pleasure to find a show that caters for teenagers with good clean content! We arrived before the theatre opened and a helpful friendly staff member gave us tips on where to go to kill some time. We arrived back and were seated in the lovely pre show lounge area. Ordered some fantastic lentil soup and shish kebab platter.... More

We went to the Marrakech magic show with Peter Morrison. He is truly amazing. You are first seated in the restaurant/lounge area of the place for about an hour before the show, so if it starts at 7, you should come around 6, it is worth it! Peter walks around the lounge performing magic for individual groups. Everyone can see... More

We went to the Marrakech Magic Theatre because we saw the great reviews in trip advisor and decided that it would be a nice place to end a day in San Francisco. We were not wrong! The act was great and Peter (the owner/magician) is a great character. I won't tell the tricks he performed, but i'll say that the... More

What a fantastic show .... Peter is so talented and charming. He comes out and interacts with all of the guests before the show and amazes with all of his tricks. He is a true showman and we loved his quick wit and humor. The show is interactive at points and goes by so fast. His magic is beautiful to... More

The pre-show gathering space already set an intimate tone for the show in an adjoining space to which the Master Magician Morrison escorted each party one by one - till the nearly 45 seats were all occupied. The variety of illusions included a really new one with cards that we had never seen before. Most astounding was the telepathic segment:... More

The show was great! The classics are back. Shock and awe. Bring your friends and family. Skip the grub. Cold, expensive and underwhelming.
