The show is OK, and sometimes fun. I like magic shows. However there was nothing new, and a lot of times the tricks shown are known for at least 100 years (a bottle and a glass, torn newspaper, woman "cut in pieces)". A lot of tricks were repeated many times with small variations.The children on the scene brought some freshness... More

We took our 2 teenage sons to the Illusions of Magic. My oldest son dabbles in magic, so he knew how some of the tricks were done, but he was blown away by Ben Blaques and his archery skills, and so were we! The show is a production with music, dancing, lights, etc. There is something for everyone - humor,... More

The entertainment was great, the magician was funny with his humor. The tiger show was good and the crossbow act was unbelievable. All in our party enjoyed the show.

Saw "Illusions of Magic" with the family and left feeling underwhelmed. More of a variety show than a magic show per se. The best part was Ben Blaque's archery abilities.

Was a good kids show. Same trick over and over again. She disappears then reappears.... Go see legends in concert instead... wish we did.

this was a very entertaining show with lots of great magic/illusions, five Bengal tigers, and a cross bow-shooter from Americas Got Talent. Our group really enjoyed this fast moving evening.

This is our 2nd time to the Palace Theater. While the theater is very clean it's quite annoying having ushers inform you where your seats are in an arena that's over 1/2 empty. People arrive during the show and the ushers walk up and down the aisles flashing you w/ their flashlights and then stand and talk to people directly... More

First time to the Palace Theatre. We saw Illusions of Magic. The show was good. The tiger portion was good. The crossbow performance was good. The crowd was small on Friday night. It was very stuffy in the theatre! The lobby was cool but once inside it was warm. Overall, it was a worthwhile and entertaining.

Overall the show was a good one. I would recommend others to go see it. The magician is likeable and the tricks were interesting but there were a couple of tricks that didn't go so smoothly and you could see how they were done. The dancers and his assistant were very energetic and the atmosphere was energetic as well. By... More
