Okay-- this was definitely fun and interesting but I feel that the other reviews on here are a bit misleading and "hyped" up. If you are expecting a fun night out and something to do, then this will be just fine. But if you are expecting amazing, nonstop magic, you will be disappointed. The magic was good and impressive but definitely not on a very high level. If you are expecting something like David Copperfield, you'll be sorely disappointed. Also, there wasn't as much magic as I had hoped. There was a lot of talking and acting that went along with the magic, but in my opinion it would be good to put in more magic tricks. However, their goal was "parlor magic" so maybe that's what parlor magic is like...?
There is a lot of audience participation which is great. Susan and Roland themselves were entertaining, warm, and funny, and they seemed like genuinely nice people. The setting/ stage is pretty cool and inviting, and it's a small crowd so it's very intimate. Also you can do a 2 for 1 dinner with the tickets, which I HIGHLY recommend. The restaurant food was very good! Overall it was a pleasant experience but I did feel a bit let down after reading all the other reviews on here. However, with dinner included, it was money well spent and decent entertainment.
Just remember to go in with no or low expectations and you'll probably have a good time. Oh- and if you are French you might get offended at one of their skits- keep an open mind :-)
