This was my second theatre experience with Carnival of Illusion. I like the smaller theatres and the camaraderie between the magicians and the magicians and the audience. We saw them at the Biltmore, where the Old World Charm of the venue begs you to go early for beverages and appetizers or for dinner. Saw them this year in Mesa and... More

There were 4 of us that enjoyed seeing Roland and Susan last night at the Tempe Center for the Arts. It was an intimate seating experience (2nd row seats). Lots of surprises and they kept our attention throughout the whole show. Fun evening with my husband Larry and my sister Amy and her husband Steve.

Have seen Roland and Susan in Scottsdale at the Kerr Center and at the Mesa Arts Center. They perform in an intimate setting and their magic is flawless. It's worth it to pay for front row seats (which does not increase your chances of audience participation). They do a very smooth and polished show that leaves you wondering how in... More

Support staff super helpful and polite. We are shorter seniors and found ourselves seated behind some very tall younger folks. I went back to the admissions personnel and they graciously found us alternate seats. We were able to see 100% of the show. Also, audience participation adds to the fun.

My father, fiancé and I attended this show on a Saturday evening at the Belmont. It was very good and entertaining! There was a lot of audience performance which kept you involved the entire time. Both are very good magicians and illusionists who left you trying to figure out their secret after every trick.

What a magical evening! The illusions performed by Susan and Roland were mesmerizing. At the end of the show, you could still hear people oohing and ahhing about what they had just witnessed. Bravo to Susan and Roland for their stellar performance! Carnival of Illusion is a show I will want to share with my friends and family.

Not wanting to leave the pool during a relaxing Scottsdale vacation, the wife bought these tickets believing I would want to go see a magic show, (being a amateur magic hack),...not only was it great magic, a fantastic audience participation act without the awkwardness, (they made everyone "special"), but it turned out to be much better than the pool on...

From beginning to end, Roland & Susan were master showmen and entertainers. They were lively and energetic and easily engaged the crowd. Their sleight of hand was uncanny. A great night of entertainment. great period costumes. A very intimate venue. I highly recommend it for locals as well as tourists.
