“Peter is incredbile - Amazing experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2011

The night starts off in the lounge where Peter introduces himself and gets to know the audience. He makes a personal connection with everyone. The theater is so small it really is an intimate experience.

Peter's magic is incredible. It is a very family friendly show. It is always wonderful to go somewhere where the person preforming is really invested in the show and in the audience. Peter genuinely cares about what he is doing, and that all of his guests are enjoying themselves. I had to call Peter a couple of times with issues concerning tickets. Both times I called I spoke with Peter directly.

Highly recommended to families/couples of any age!

“We all loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2011

I wish we could have arrived earlier because the food seemed good and we only had time for a quick bite. Peter has been very entertaining and the size of the audience makes it a very personal and intimate show. I believe at least one person from every party was somehow involved and all seemed to enjoy it. Allow a bit longer than the stated time as the show started a bit later and audience lingered afterwards to take pictures with Peter. I think it's particularly good for families with children 5-12.

“The most amazing, fantastic experience - a must thing to do when visiting SF!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2011

If you want to feel like a child again, doing something fun and unique and out of the regular day - this is the show to see! I strongly recommend being there an hour early for a drink, some food and some pre-show. Peter is walking around, welcoming everyone personally and doing some card tricks. The "waiting room" is so cozy and the staff super-friendly, everything from the candlelit stair to the room is giving you the feeling of leaving your ordinary life behind you and entering into something magical.

The show is so amazing, it is impossible to see how Peter does the tricks (even up close) and the theater only have 35 seats so everything is close up and intimate. And during the show he interacts with the audience, picking people to come up and assist him. Is so much fun and the time flies by too quick. It is a great value and if you only have one evening in SF - go here!

“The show is unique, fun, and entertaining for all ages.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2011

Peter is the ultimate host and magician. His show is a wonderful combination of outstanding illusion, humor, audience participation, and wonder. It was obvious that the entire audience loved the performance, and the quaint theater makes every seat a good one. We brought our 12 and 14 year old boys, who are tough to get excited, and they raved about the show afterwards.
