My husband and I went to the Carnival of Illusion show on Valentine's Day 2015. We had a wonderful time. Roland and Susan have wonderful talent--both as entertainers and magicians. Loved it! We will be back next year!

We went for the Valentine's Day show in Tucson and could not imagine a better Valentine's Day event. Yes, the magic was good, the magicians made it personal to our show rather than canned patter, and the venue was perfect. What we liked most was Catherine the event coordinator and how she took care of us. Catherine manages the ticket... More

My husband and I have seen the show several times and each time it's a unique and entertaining experience. Roland and Susan are extremely talented and dedicated to making their shows funny, yet mysterious. At the end of the show, they demonstrate their warmth and gratitude to each and every audience member as they leave. We look forward to seeing... More

This is a really great show. Lots of fun and a charming performance. We checked it out on our first day in Tucson and it was a great decision. Roland and Susan are great performers and it shows throughout the show. It's a small, intimate venue and very personal. I'd definitely repeat the next time we find ourselves in Tucson.... More

My mother treated me to a show and we had a blast! Roland and Susan did an incredible job at keeping the group entertained and stealing our breathe away each and every moment. Too many times I caught myself thinking about the trick and trying to figure it out, never succeeding. The room that the show is in was small... More

I've been to this show twice now and I am still completely entranced by the magic of it. Roland Sarlot and Susan Eyed are completely entertaining and make an effort to personally connect with the audience. They recognize birthdays, anniversaries and any other special occasions of which they are notified; even recognize and thank the 'repeaters'. They also shake the... More
