Absolutely hands down a wonderful performance. The Trickster kept the show moving, each act was so entertaining.
A fun entertaining evening. Engaging show with performers that involve the audience.
Illusionists - Magic and More
We were fortunate to catch The Illusionists at William Saroyan Theatre on April 27. Great show in a great venue! Seven top-notch performers and a full supporting cast of assistants. Each performer has his own specialty and each person in our party had their own favorite performer. My husband was most impressed by Andrew Basso, the Escapologist. I tried to hold my breath during his water escape and lasted 40 seconds. The Escapologist lasted over 3 minutes! My daughter enjoyed The Weapon Master Ben Blaque's feats the most. He shot one arrow and split three helium balloon strings in a row. Every shot from his cross-bow was fantastic! My favorite performer was Jeff Hobson, The Trickster, who opened the show and set the stage for an evening of fun entertainment. He was hilarious and performed great magic! If you're homophobic, stay home, but if not, The Illusionists will entertain and delight. There's something for every fan of magic.
Average performance, too much fluff, minimal actual Illusions. Loved the MC.
The Illusionists were absolutely fabulous! So glad we got to see them. Even sitting in the first row, we still could not figure out how they did it!
