It was a fun and entertaining performance. Our group of 7 ranged in age from 15 - 62 and we all laughed and enjoyed the show. It is nice to have live theater in town.

Outstanding magic in a small setting (so the slight of hand is the real deal). The owner, Rich Bloch (a well-respected magician in his own right), provides an unique setting for his expansive network of pals. Magicians enjoy this venue 'cause it's fun! We've been...More
