Posted June 13, 2014 You MUST go! I took my family and it was one of the most special outings we've ever had. It appealed equally to all of us (two adults, two young teens). My kids thanked me profusely for bringing them! This magic show is amazing, beautiful, fun and intriguing. Everything everyone says in all these 5 star... More

Forget about the "grand magic shows" where colossal objects appear and disappear on stage while you sit as one amongst several hundreds in the audience. The Marrakech Magic Theatre is more like a street performance infused with atmosphere. The street-feel comes from the tiny venue where you literally sit at arms length from where the magic happens. The atmosphere comes... More

Peter Morrison's magic show was one of the best acts I have ever seen. When we first got to the theater they sat us down in a lounge area and Mr.Morrison came around and did magic tricks right in front of our faces. I still can't figure out how he did it! I was amazed. The actual show was amazing.... More

We had a great time at this show! Both my kids (13 and 15) loved it! Be sure to get there early. Cocktails and food were delicious and reasonably priced. Magic show was excellent!

This show was the highlight of our trip to California in July. We agree that getting to the pre-show early enough to meet Peter Morrison is worth it. It was a great time and great to see magic in such an intimate setting. We appreciate all the time Peter Morrison spent answering our son's questions about magic (above and beyond:)).

Great way to spend a couple of hours especially if you are staying near Union Square. This is a small intermit show where the audience become part of the show at times. About a maximum of 50 people. One hour before show you can go to theatre order a drink and something to eat. Peter the magician interacts with you... More

The real magic of Peter Morrison is how he reels you in slowly with his charming stage personality and then rips you out of the water with his astounding classical routines. With great audience participation and a lively atmosphere, this is one act that will leave you breathless.

We read about this show on Trip Advisor, so made sure were in town at the end of the week and booked well ahead. A magical setting in an underground cavern with red velvet curtains and tealight candles guiding you down the stairs. You are greeted as soon as you arrive. We got there early enough to try their superb... More

What's great about Marrakech is the intimacy. You can get there an hour before the show and have drinks and appetizers and meet the magician as he comes out to meet you. You then go into a small "theater" and enjoy the show, which he does extremely well. I have never been to a magic show before, and seeing this... More

Wonderful, highly-skilled sleight-of-hand magic, done in very close quarters. I sat on the front row and could not see how he accomplished his incredible feats. My grandchildren were mesmerised.
