This is a must see show! I have never experienced such an intimate setting to see a magic show. It was the perfect way to be entertained with family and friends as Peter pulls audience members as volunteers from this small group. Peter is an extremely talented magician and very personable! I thoroughly enjoyed the show, theater, and service! Highly... More

We attended the show not really knowing what to expect. We were welcomed by a great magician and enjoyed both his tricks and ability to engage the audience. The show is not in the best of areas (edge of the tenderloin) but all in all, a good experience.

Decided to attend based on all the positive reviews on trip advisor. We were not disappointed. We arrived early. The food in the lounge (which really comes from the restaurant next door) was good, albeit overpriced. Peter Morrison, the proprietor, was extremely gracious and patient. It takes a special person to consistently deal with all sorts of people, including frenetic... More

A great night in an intimate theatre kept all our family entertained for the whole time we were there. Peter Morrison is a fine and charming host and comes round and greets you personally and did some wonderful card tricks. A very entertains and enjoyable evening.

My husband and I were both thoroughly entertained by this charismatic talented magician, Peter Morrison! We were so glad that we got there early because we were able to have a drink and some Moroccan hor d’oeuvres in a special waiting lounge while Peter came around and did a few outstanding card tricks before the show started. The whole experience... More

Went with two teens, niece and son. We rode the bus so ended up being first there. We were happy to have some relax time in the lounge prior after bus ride. Peter meets you personally and does card tricks. We had humus and baclava-yummy. Peter gets to know you so its like going to a friends dinner party with... More

Great night. A group of 3 adults and we all loved it. Upon arrival you can enjoy a drink and nibbles. Peter makes the rounds with card tricks to loosen the mood and greet the guests. The show was great, I'm still wowed! For something different when visiting, recommend. Peters passion for magic and entertaining really shines.

Just got back from seeing Peter Morrison at the Marrakech Theatre. What an experience . He Spent the hour before the actual show connecting with his guests and doing magic. It is clear he knows how to connect with his guests and remember names and earlier conversations which he bridges into his show later. He exudes energy and humour not... More

REALLY? Would this be the top thing on your SF trip? Sad, boring and not worth the time. There are so many better things to do in Sn Francisco

I am so sorry that you did not find anything in your evening with us to be enjoyable. I care deeply that every guest leave with a positive experience, and obviously this was not the case for you. I am not sure what your expectations were about the show beyond our positive reviews, but again I am sorry that I... More

We saw jay Alexander here and loved it! We had a bit of a reservation mix up but it was dealt with quickly, make sure you reserve! They served drinks before the show. Was surprised that it was so small but once the show started I was glad and understood! One of our best San Francisco experiences.
