My entire family loved this show...We will go and see it again in the future if possible. Its not "JUST" a magic show. There is so much more going on besides the magic, and its fun for all ages. The show was well worth the money we spent to see it.

Magic was fair to poor. Dancers were fair. The highlight to this show was Ben Blacque. He was the crossbar expert from Americas Got Talent.

I don't like to go to shows without a coupon since they're in nearly every travel magazine in Myrtle Beach. I was able to find $4 off adult tickets and we also went to a matinee so the tickets seemed reasonable. The show started a little slow initially but once they started the disappearing acts, my 7- and 4- year old were mesmerized trying to figure out where the lady went after she disappeared. It's a great age to attend the show because the kids aren't jaded and skeptical yet. : )

A few highlights of the show: they have a live caged tiger. You can take a picture with the tiger during intermission and buy the picture for $20. I stood by the stage to take take a pic of my husband and kids, but we still ended up buying the picture since it comes in a little folder with the name of the show on it.

The dancers were great. They also included two acts from America's Got Talent -- a rollerskating couple and Ben Blaque who does dangerous things with a crossbow. He was amazing.

The illusionist/assistants could do a little more to hide his tricks with the curtain though. Everyone in my section (lower left orchestra) was able to witness a slip-up where we saw how someone "reappeared" in the box. Nonetheless, the kids had a good time. I'd recommend the matinee show to save a little money on tickets.

Illusions of Magic was an entertaining show that kept young and old carefully watching. The highlight for all was the performance of Ben Blaque which was amazing. Shooting an
arrow while blindfolded should not be tried at home. While some of the show dragged a little with the dancing was "magic" was quite good . A good evenings entertainment
