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

We went to the show as first time guests and truly enjoyed it. I went with my son who recently became interested in magic and illusions and we both had smiles on our faces and I could see the wheels turning in his head as he was trying to figure out the tricks/illusions. Roland and Susan do a wonderful job... More

Clever and deceptively intriguing; a fun evening for the entire audience ( It's a very intimate surrounding with probably not over 100 people). I'd highly recommend catching this when it's in town.

My wife, in-laws, and two children (12 and 8) thoroughly enjoyed this show. We had second row seats (entire first row was sold out) and we were able to see everything quite well. The entire show kept our attention and the music and lighting complemented the magic. We definitely go back and see again!

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
