it was truly an intimate magic experience. very private and Ivan gets everyone involved during the show! Ivan makes every person in the crow feel like they are part of the magic show. He does spend a lot of time talking, but that is not a bad thing at all. Most magic shows waste their time playing loud music to the left and to the right to confuse everyone. but not Ivan... He make it very interesting. He tries to make everyone feel good and personally talks to EVERY SINGLE person at the show!
I got over excited at times.. but this is amazing! DO NOT MISS THIS SHOW!
just wait until the end and crazy magic happens... =D
It really is worth every penny you spend...

“Great entertainment”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Ivan's show is a delight, and it definitely transports you back to an Old Hollywood era of glitz and glamor. Plus, it's a whole lot of fun. You don't know what to expect, and Ivan keeps the show very lively, funny, and never dull. Live cello music is a bonus which maintains the energy. I think for couples and/or families, your evening is well-spent with Ivan.

“Amazing... Intimate... A MUST-SEE!!!”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

I flew all the way from TEXAS with my girlfriend to see Ivan's show and I have to say: it was worth the trip! Without a doubt, Ivan is one of the best magicians of our day. He's extremely funny, creative, and his show never slows down. The evening was 90 minutes jam packed with superb showmanship, mystery, and music. Factor in the intimate setting and posh décor of the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, and you have a night you won't forget... Highly recommended. Book your tickets now.

“Hilarious and original”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Ivan's performance is laced with humor and is entirely engaging. An added bonus is the accompaniment of beautiful cello playing. When the show was over I couldn't believe it-- ninety minutes had flown by. For hours, I was replaying his illusions in my mind and was stumped completely. It was simply amazing! Without a doubt, I will see this show again.

“Must See One-of-a-Kind Show!”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

I have seen Ivan preform dozens of times and keep coming back for more. There is always something new, exciting, and fun going on. This is great magic that will WOW you. It's also wonderful comedy, music, and a great atmosphere. This is something you don't want to miss if you can get a seat before they sell out!
