“not very good”
Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

Very boring and not good magic either. I was extremely disappointed. I actuallly fell asleep a couple of times but when I was awake I could easily tell how each trick was done. Their humor attempted to save a lackluster show but was only able to get a forced chuckle out of me once or twice.

“Better than I expected”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

I wasn't sure what to expect as I've heard mixed reviews on this show. Got comp tickets, so I said what the heck. I was pleasantly surprised. These guys are very entertaining, funny, and talented. The illusions were top notch...especially the bullet trick at the end. Plus they take the time to greet their fans after the show...true class acts.

“Still have it...”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

It was like seeing an old friend. Good to see and still talented as ever but the show was a little short in my opinion. Thrilled to have seen them.

Great banter and tricks from these pair, amazed us throughout! Deffinately a must see! We got a bus to the Rio hotel, we had dinner in the buffet before the show. It was so entertaining. Prices were reasonable, we got the from one of the discount shops along the strip.

“A bit spendy, but a good time.”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

I am too much of a cheapskate for the prices of LV shows. At $1/min/person, this show feels a bit spendy. But it was very well done, quite a spectacle, and something worth seeing once for any fan of P&T, or high-quality magic. In a very classy move, both P&T make themselves available to the audience on their way out of the theater, and patiently and humorously pose for photos and sign autographs. Here's a tip for the cheapskates: don't pay for a souvenir glass: people leave them in their seats after the show, and you can have as many as you want for free. This was a once-in-a-lifetime fling for me, and I had a very good time.
