Great show!

Great way to spend an hour in Galena! We have visited Galena many times but have never done anything like this. P.T. was funny, entertaining, and involved the whole audience in his show. We are still trying to figure out the orange trick! Thanks for helping celebrate our birthday boy!

Couples Night ( Fourth Time Seeing this Show)
Oct 2021 • Couples
This is easily one of the best shows in America. We’ve seen ‘em all in every tourist town we go to, and PT’s wit, charm, & skill stands head and shoulders above the shows with smoke & mirrors.

We’ve seen it 4 times now & every time it’s sold out, and PT always perfectly remembers the names of everyone in the audience. Every show is different with various audience interactions.

Really fun and entertaining
Oct 2021
Had a great time with my husband. Mr. Murphy was very entertaining. His tricks were very tricky and his jokes were funny; Not only jokes he has probably told a million times but very quick witted with back and forth banter. Included the audience and got my $20 back in one piece. ;) highly recommend. Priced right. Close, cozy upfront so no one misses a thing.

Ventriloquist?
Oct 2021 • Couples
Murphy not only a talented magician but a first rate entertainer. He kept the audience captive. ( He locked the doors.). He also gave a truly memorable performance as a ventriloquist. Wearing a Covid mask likely enhanced this skill.

Thank you “Ivan” for the nice review. However we do have to clarify a few things, for those who have not seen the show. The ventriloquism is but a small 5 second portion of the show, and we NEVER lock the doors. That would be a fire hazard. Ivan could have left whenever he wanted to. Clearly I cast a spell over him. A spell of enchantment and immobility. ;)

Excellent show in/near Galena, IL
Sep 2021
This is the best show I've seen, PT Murphy made the show personalized in a small settings, he remembered everyone's name and made sure each and every member was part of the show.
Icing on cake was his comedy along with the magic show. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is coming to Galena, IL. His attention to safety in the time of COVID-19 made my family feel very safe
