We have been twice ...once in person and once virtual. Both experiences were great. He is so entertaining besides being a wonderful magician. If you are in Galena or want an at home experience via zoom during this pandemic, make sure you go to his website and purchase a very affordable ticket! You won't be sorry!!

P.T. Murphy is part magician, part comedian. The show is a joy and not just because you get the impressive tricks you've paid for. He invests in his audience in a way few performers do effectively, involving us in his magic and teaching us tricks along the way. My family (partner and two boys - 9 and 12) logged into a virtual magic show, unsure what to expect, but were delighted that P.T. can maintain his charisma and high energy show even on the Zoom platform. Couldn't recommend more!

I hardly leave reviews unless they are to warn other people... until now! This one is a must do! Especially in a time when many of us are trying to think of different things to do to keep us entertained at home. Highly recommend for the whole fam!

If Plato has an idyllic form of magic, it must be PT Murphy. With the wit of Joan Rivers at her brassiest and a sleight of hand that makes Mandrake look like Man-dork, PT will reaffirm for even the most petulant goth chick or emo dude that, dammit, life IS magic. So swing on by and treat yourself to a PT cruise. May the spirits of magic bless Mr. Murphy; he’ll pull a rabbit out of your heart.

Having had a great time attending a show while vacationing in Galena a couple of years ago, I was excited to get an email about the premier of virtual shows on 2020 New Year's Eve and thrilled to be able to get a ticket for the final show that evening. And the actual live-streamed performance itself exceeded my expectations. I don’t feel that any of the intimacy of attending a performance in person in the small venue along with only 23 other audience members was lost. I was entertained, amazed, and had great fun learning a bit of magic! And I enjoyed watching the online interaction with two youngsters (and their cat) during one of the illusions. I’m glad to see the virtual shows will be continuing in 2021 and certainly hope to catch a couple them.
