LAME
Sep 2021
This act should be located in a better, cleaner environment. I felt trapped and clostrphobic. The area is very dark to walk back to your vehicle also. It was more of a comedy act and get acquitted hour than performing magic. It definately wasn't worth 30 dollars.

A Different Kind of Fun
Sep 2021 • Friends
PT Murphy’s show was tremendous. He provided an excellent combination of laughter and magic! We sat in the front row and both of us tried to catch the trickery, but neither of us could figure out exactly when the magic happened. Full of surprises and fun, I’d highly recommend this very different form of entertainment!

We enjoyed the entire show. P.T. Murphy is quite the showman. He is a great magician, witty and personable. Audience participants were made comfortable while assisting in his magic. A fun hour!!!!

Front Row Amazement
Aug 2021
Even sitting on the front row it was impossible to tell how the tricks were done. P.T. Murphy is personable, witty and a great showman! I am still trying to figure out General Grant's favorite trick. Well done, well played and completely enjoyable.

Must do--- Best spent hour in Galena
Aug 2021
Great show. Nice mix of magic and humor. AMAZING how he remembered everyone's names and got each of the 32 people present in audience brought into the acts by name Some several times.

Card tricks I was baffled by but the disappearing $20 bill was the BEST!!

How did he do that?

The show was a blast! He was masterful and quite personable! How he does close-up magic is mind boggling. Well worth the price of admission.

Great show!
Aug 2021
What a great show! The moment you step in you meet the masterful magician. With such a small group of guests you get an unforgettable experience. The magic happens right in front of you and many times you are part of the show. The interaction is seamless and very entertaining. P. T. Murphy creates a magical and personalized show every time and the only regret is that it lasts only one hour! I highly recommend you to put this show at the top of your list when visiting Galena, IL.
