Went to this show for a company xmas party. The venue is small. 100 seats or so. The magic was extraordinary. It is a lot harder to get away with slight of hand 5 feet away. The mind reading was unreal.

2 adults and our 3 children 15, 18 & 22 were thoroughly entertained by this magic show. We truly could not figure out how he was doing all that stuff. You will be glad you had this experience

We loved it. The whole experience is great from the tricks at the table while we had a drink to the show itself. We took our kids (8 and 9) and they loved it too, and kept saying 'amazing' the rest of the night. A real highlight. Great show for adults and kids. Keep the quality and hands on experience... More

I rarely give 5's, but this was a really fun family activity to do in San Francisco. I felt like the cost was reasonable, and if you have kids it was a great thing for them. Well worth the visit!

Last night I saw Peter Morrison perform - it was my fifth time seeing him over the last 3 years. I keep coming back because I know I will continue to be amazed at his sleight of hand. He performs in an intimate theater with everyone close enough to see what he is doing. That still doesn't help you figure... More

We saw Jay Alexander (standing in for the regular guy) and he was terrific. The theatre is tiny and intimate so you can see very well. It was really convenient to have appetizers and drinks prior to the show and nice to only park once since parking is very expensive in the area. Food was acceptable (hence 4 instead of... More

I can't say enough good things about my experience at this magic show! Peter is welcoming, funny, and extremely talented!!! My boyfriend and I came here with little to no expectations and just wanted to do something different on a rainy Friday night. What we experienced at Peter's show blew us away! He is quite the magician but even more... More

I went to see Peter Morrison at the Marrakech Magic Theater this last weekend and I definitely did not regret it! This was my first magic show I've ever been to and I was not let down. As soon as we walked down the candlelit stairs into the theatre, we were immediately sat down and quickly attended to a waiter.... More

Just so you know, this show used to be categorized as an "Attraction" by TripAdvisor where it was rated #2 in all of San Francisco (for years, apparently). When TripAdvisor reorganized things and put them in "Activities" their position dropped. I was admittedly skeptical of this show, guessing that it had gotten such good ratings by happy tourists who were... More

Went to Marrakech magic theater on last night if a family trip to San Francisco. Was disappointed at content, many of tricks my 11year old son was able to figure out. Pros: easy ticket booking, small inviting atmosphere, liked magicians approach to engaging our family Cons: absolute paucity of content. No major magic tricks. Overall, I would not recommend this...

I am sorry that my show did not live up to your expectations. I always suggest that people take the time to view our videos on our website and really read what my show is all about. It is not a grand Illusion show, it is however a classic close up parlor performance which makes it very unusual. I am... More
