Owner description: David Copperfield has been hailed by audiences and critics alike as the greatest illusionist of our time.He’s the first living illusionist to be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He was knighted by the French government. He received a Living Legend award from the Library of Congress. He’s won over 21 Emmy awards for his groundbreaking television specials, and he holds 11 Guinness World Records. Sound impossible? David Copperfield built a reputation on making the impossible look easy.

“Time for David to take a break!”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

Booked this show (June 29th) in the winter! Had been looking forward to it all year. WOW! What a flop! Mr. Copperfield looked totally bored, going through the motions as it were. No showmanship to speak of, only someone looking like they had to get somewhere after the show and wanted to get done. The theater was dank and dark, as was the performance. Either pack it in Mr. Copperfield, or step up your game for the hard working people that pay to see this legendary illusionist.

“How does he do it?!”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

Very enjoyable performance. We sat at the front and was mind blown over the tricks and being so close could not see a single string or give away. He is very enchanting! His cocky attitude mixed with the way he tells stories will keep you entertained until the end.

“Don't miss this show!”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

Wonderful and amazing show. A show you can bring your children to also. Davis Copperfield interacts with the audience throughout the program. Can't tell you how much we enjoyed this show. It was a last-minute decision to see this show and we are so glad we did. We were just amazed at the magic/illusions.

“Great Tricks, Mind-Blowing, Worth the Price”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

Okay, the bit of the show with the alien was too long. I agree with the negative reviews on that. But, the tricks (motorcycle/car appearing, mind-reading with numbers, the word-game illusion with the wristbands, the levitating guy, the vanishing audience, etc) were all great. This is an expensive show, but so much better than some other Vegas magic acts. The seating is good (a little cramped, but old-vegas style), the act was smooth and had some "wow" moments, and I even got picked to be a part of the final illusion! (I got to catch a ball and sit on stage while he made some people vanish.) I did not see anything so I was amazed at the act! WOW! A great time for all ages. A long act, a good act, worth the trip and the cost. (Some people, like a cab driver we met, think everything is staged/fake, but honestly, we liked it and had a great time!) Copperfield is also a little tongue in cheek, but did not seem "rude."

“Amazing! So fun to see”
Reviewed July 3, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I are both "magic lovers". We enjoyed this show so much and look forward to going back in a years time.
David kept us always guessing and watching him so closely to see if we could figure out his tricks. We loved how he kept our attention and amazed us through his entire show!
The drinks are way over priced! That felt like a slap in the face being we paid alot for the show itself.
But we loved it and will go back
