Fun Family Night

I loved the theater it was like walking back in time. Maxwell was a really neat and talented guy. We laughed and smiled the whole time. He kept us guessing how he did the things he did. Great experience.

Sadly, rather dreadful
Nov 2021
Poor Maxwell Blade must be feeling bored or disengaged during his long Hot Springs run. The show was no less than tragic; too little camp value to be outrageous, and too much ineptitude to call it a bona fide magic show. Max wandered around the stage a tad aimlessly, half-heartedly executing small-scale tricks which were often hard to see from the audience. He dropped props, mumbled his way through a few tired routines, and - when the mood struck him - wailed a few Elton John tunes with no apparent context. On more than one occasion - like a highly-touted escape trick - his illusions actually backfired, and you could see his furtive assistants, frantically trying to hide during the sequence. Don't get me wrong; Maxwell Blade seemed affable and semi-amused at his own jokes, but the entire evening plodded along pretty damn aimlessly. When he announced - after 95 minutes in what was billed as a show with a total running time of less than two hours - that he was taking an intermission, we were flabbergasted. We felt certain the show was over. But no! There was more to come. Disheartened and feeling more than a little ripped off, we opted to skip the second act and returned to our hotel for some urgently-needed nightcaps. The bartender who hoisted and flipped liquor bottles to make our cocktails demonstrated more flair and mastery of sleight-of-hand than we caught at the Malco Theater. Sigh.

Maxwell Blade engaged with the audience terrifically! A very talented, sincere, and genuine performer. The show was much more than I expected, a great value for money and a truly awesome experience.

Fun Time!

Really enjoyed the Maxwell Blade show. Mr. Blade was entertaining, funny, and performed some really impressive magic tricks! I would recommend this show to anyone visiting Hot Springs. Just FYI, they sell snacks and beverages (both alcoholic and non). This show will be five stars when they work out the mic sound quality. There were parts that were muffled and we couldn't always hear in the first half, but it seems they figured that out and the second half was better.

It was a fun show. I have not seen a magic show before. I was definitely intrigued by Maxwell Blade. Will most certainly go to more magic shows

Very disappointing, Don’t waste your money.
Oct 2021 • Couples
This show was highly recommended so we went. Got there about 35 minutes early and they had red lights on the ceiling shining down on you the whole time. The whole theater was painted black. It was making my eyes burn. The pre-show music was seriously load and not clear. Then the show was about 20 minutes late starting. The singing was awful, the piano sounded like an electric static machine. The magic was just ok. The only part that was interesting was when the kids were on stage. Very disappointed in everything that went on. We left at the break. Waste of money.
