We saw the show in Tucson. The theater is very small. If you can get aisle seats, you can see as well as the front row. This is old world magic, but everyone was still amazed, and more importantly, had fun. We paid the full price. The Tucson Pass has a coupon of buy one get one free.

Roland Sarlot and Susan Eyed put on an unforgettable show. The magic is mesmerizing, their showmanship is great and Susan's dance skills add something very special to the "journey" the audience takes with the stars of the show. You'll be transported back in time when you step thru their dramatically draped entrance. This is not just a magic show, it's... More

I saw the show in Tucson recently - what fun! Roland and Susan have an amazing synergy between them - and with the audience as well. There was so much attention to detail - we really did get transported to the "Old World". A magical evening it was...thanks Sarlot and Eyed!!

My wife and I flew out to Tucson for a vacation and the only thing we had planed the whole trip was to see the carnival of illusion show. The show was in Scottsdale so we got a chance to check out the Phoenix area too. I have a love for the old world things. Magic, side shows, the 1920's..... More

This is a great show - 80 minutes of magic presented in a fun and engaging manner. The stars involve the audience and weave a fun story into the show. Very well done and next time in Tucson I will be back. One member of the audience was attending for the 10th time!

The performers try hard and have a few tricks up their sleeves, however, the show is not professionally executed. The staging and site lines are awful. We were seated in the back row (allegedly seats "added" to the maximum limit), had trouble seeing the performers, had to pay full price for two (not honoring the 2-for-1 stamp the admission person...

"RoseMarie8787", every guest has a right to their opinion but some of what you stated is incorrect. We are very sorry that you were not able to use your discount due to the general admission seats already being sold out. Because you only wanted to attend at the last minute, we added an additional row of barstools which you did... More

This was a fun evening of magic by two of the most engaging people I have ever seen! They knew how to play to the audience and include everyone in the show. Ooh, la la! We had a great time!
