FABULOUS comedy and magic show. Like nothing I've ever seen (and I've seen a lot of magic shows!). So unique - lots of musical satirical numbers and so well done. Very creative use of the back of stage, which is a wall of windows along the sidewalk. Outdoor space was used in very creative and hilarious ways. Great audience interaction. Fantastic piano player while people were getting seated - I'd come early just to see him if that was possible! The magician had so many wonderful illusions and all were entertaining and/or funny. Highly recommended!!

My husband was skeptical, but this was one of the highlights of this trip. Make sure to book in advance if you can as both shows the night we were there were sold out. It's creative, thoughtful, and funny- everyone in the audience was enjoying the music and magic. A good way to spend a couple hours in the evening down on the Dirty Six....

Great comedy show. Really funny. The actors/actresses are fantastic. Magician was great. I did general admission. Got there an hour early and sat in the front row. The hour went quickly because you people watch because the front of the theater is windows to the street. I gave it “4” instead of “5” because there were something’s that were a little crude. I was there with my 14 & 18 y/o. If those things don’t bother you, it’s a 5.

A must.. If you're visiting Austin. I used to live in Austin and often took visitors to Esther's. For me this was a nostalgic visit and I was happy to find the new talented cast was fantastic and the few originals were equally impressive...

I'm filling this out for a pre-Covid visit. They are re-opening soon! YAY! There is nothing but fun to be had here! I have laughed so hard each time that my jaws literally hurt. Smart, funny, talented- this show is phenomenal. Please do not miss this wonderful group! I promise you will not have a boring moment.

Went on a Friday night with my mom while visiting Austin. We laughed from start to finish. And someone proposed during the show. I don’t know how you get better than that! Also walked by the next night and got to see them performing from the street which was equally amazing. Would recommend a million times over!

Really enjoyed the magician and his tricks. In very good taste. What killed this performance for my entire company was the continously put downs of anything or anyone associated with the Republican party. They were also very apparently biased on anyone NOT from Austin. Even with me being from Texas myself, I still felt offended by all the obvious arrogance that was in the air. I think, to avoid all the unnecessary left wing arrogance, my next road trip sure won't be back to Austin TX! 😐

Our kids took us here, not knowing what kind of place it was. I was so grossed out by the potty humor. They were very embarrassed to have brought us to such a show. We would never go to this sort of show. We will not be back

Reserve seats early on line, and relax , visit the bar and sit in the foyer area to take in the sites in the lobby. This show was recommended with no idea what to expect, I am so glad that was the case. It is a must see show. Put this on your list to the Austin sites !!
Arriving early on 6th street will help negotiate the Parking ! unless you stopped at one of the hotels downtown and walked. We had dinner at Hotel Driskill, then made our way to Esther's. Open the completion of Esther's show there is free admission to the club next door, Velveeta.
We will not miss Esther's Follies the next time we visit the Austin area.
