Attraction details
Reviewed 12 September 2016 via mobile

As a professional magician, I had to check out this show. It was much more enjoyable than I expected as Steve takes you on an journey with history of card cheats demonstrating his card finesse as well as other things that defies logic. The gentleman who sat to my left told me he's been to watch it 6 times, I can see why and I would happily go watch it again.

I absolutely love magic shows especially when they are intimate like a parlour magic performance. Attended with husband and 10 year old. The venue is easy to find a minutes walk from Oxford Circus next to Liberty's The Courthouse Hotel is a unique venue an Old Grade 2 Magistrates Court even Oscar Wilde was tried here. Pre theatre drinks in the bar you could sit in one of the 3 prison cells still with a loo in the corner. The theatre is intimate and luxurious cinema room with comfortable seats. Steve did a great show covering the history of magic, giving the audience hints of how things work, demonstrating card cheats inventions. The audience are drawn in either to volunteer or watch closely the video screen gives you a good view of proceedings. I would highly recommend as the venue and the performance combined are a memorable experience.

Don't waste your money on an adult show when you want to entertain your little ones.
They will mislead you to believe it is a show for children . But it is NOT.
Subject is poker cheat , will you want your 7 years old to be entertained by that ? probably not . For your money they will convince you that 1000 of other kids was really loved it. If you buy cheaper tickets they will not inform you in advance but you will not be allowed to sit in the first rows ...... . Another misleading I would have to say .
Don;t bother to complain after they had received your money there is no way anybody would listen . Huge disappointment for my 3 children

If you find entertainment for your children to be poker cheats , it is for you guys,
I asked the producer beforehand and he recommended the show highly for kids .

Well it is not. Not only for the subject , but how the entertainer ignored the kids in the show as if they are not part .

I guess he is a money machine as was not happy to refund the payment of the
very bad experience and admit his mistake

DON'T GO

If you want to see some very impressive card handling. Then this is defo the show for you
The story is great along with the show and some of the magic is defo in the cards
Try getting a Groupon and if you can, try and sit in the front row, right in the middle only 4ft from the table. You still won't see the magic
Well done
