“"Murray: Celebrity Magician" - You won't be awed, but you'll be entertained”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

We've seen magicians before, but were drawn to this show for two reasons: 1) Reasonable prices for great seats, and 2) Our kids had seen Murray on America's Got Talent. Not a lot of illusions that you haven't seen before, but the show is a great mix of family friendly humor (a couple of jokes that might make some cringe) and illusion. I got called up on stage (this has happened to me before, never because I initiate it or seek it out, but because my family volunteers me) and had a great time interacting with Murray. He signed some autographs for us and gave us a free DVD for my participation. [By the way, "family friendly" has a lot of meanings in Las Vegas, so this review is coming from a fairly conservative Midwestern churchgoer.] Definitely recommend.

“Saw Dancing with the Stars!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

Great dancing, fun entertainment and comedy. Like watching a customized version of the TV show but live on stage.

“Murray: Celebrity Magician”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

Great mix of comedy and well performed magic. The night was almost non-stop laughter with Murray being a natural born showman. Great entertainment in a very close and intimate venue.

“Tropicana Theater ....poor show venue”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

DWTS cast were good, but venue is terrible. The seating is not tiered, therefore, it is very difficult to see the show. Also, the chairs are moveable, but placed on top of each other. The cast are good , but not stars. Costumes very nice. Carson relies too much on his "gayness" to cover his lack of talent.

“Average, at best.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012

Had high expectations but fell short. Out of 10, maybe a 6 or 7. Had great seats and the dancers were outstanding. Got full of Carson's 'gay' jokes and mannerisms. Would have been a 9 without him!
