Very entertaining. Keeps the audience involved. It was very crowded and some people were allowed to "pre-seat" before they opened for general seating so you have to be there early to get a better seat or to keep a group together. We enjoyed it very much.

What a surprise to find such a great entertainer in Hot Springs Arkansas. We were entertained throughout the entire performance and were on the second row and still couldn't figure out how he was doing some of his tricks. Must see when you visit Hot Springs. We can't wait to come back to see his new show in his new/old... More

We didn't expect much but were pleasantly surprised! Maxwell Blade was very good, very funny, very good magician, and quite a good musician. Kids would love it! He brings up a few kids for part of the show, which left me in tears of laughter! The little museum was filled with a strange collection of oddities from history....which I love... More

Maxwell Blade puts on a quite extraordinary show. He is quite an entertaining magician, comedian, and musician. His show was compelling and quite a riot at times! I was amazed at his magic tricks and cracked up at some of his bantering with the crowd. It is a must see show when in Hot Springs!

I have seen Maxwell Blade before and didn't want see the same thing. Well to our delight the show all different and will leave you with your jaw dropped wondering what just happened. Maxwell Blade is a Master Magic Artist that the whole family will enjoy.

We stopped by the theatre to check out the collection of strangeness & oddities in the museum. I reluctantly paid the $30 for the family & we ran through the place in a few minutes. My kids (7 & 9) seemed to enjoy themselves but they really need to reduce the price on this. Upon exiting we ran into the... More

We were admittedly skeptical before coming to Maxwell Blade's show; it's so easy for a magic show to be cheesy and cringe-inducing. We had heard good things about this show, however, and do we decided to give it a shot. We were not in the least disappointed: this man is obviously an experienced showman and knew how to please a...

It was a great show. Maxwell does a great job entertaining the crowd. Some audience participation especially children. His magic was spot on and left all of us wandering. A good way to spend an evening in Hot Springs. Get there as close to 7pm as you can to get a good seat. We will be back.

A fun outing to experience a magic show. Neat for the kids to have a magic show experience. Maxwell Blade engages the audience with different magic acts for all to enjoy. Suggest you get there early to "reserve" your seat and not have to sit on the sides.
