Who doesn’t like magic? This show was so much fun. The magicians are doing what they love and that comes through. Enjoyed all 4 magicians performing for us tableside, each one outstanding and with a different style.

The show was very interesting . Magicians come to your table in between courses at dinner and do tricks with cards and coins, but done in a very slick and professional fashion. We spent 3 hours over dinner and the show and thoroughly enjoyed it....More

Personal magicians come to your table and dazzle you with magic. Even up and close we couldn't work out how the tricks were done. Meal was very good and was good for my teenage boys who didn't want to go to a musical.

Hi there, I think you mean to review "The Seance" not A Taste of Magic which is a dinner theater magic show produced by the same company. Sorry you didn't enjoy the other show but this is NOT that show.
