Tries to please, Vegas staging, Pull its punches, Nothing new, Cheesy

See it if you have children that have never seen the illusions before, U don't want 2 C a play or musical, U can be thrilled by age old tricks

Don't see it if U want the illusions geared to an adult audience, U don't want 2 B blinded by ill aimed stagelights, U expect Vegas level stagecraft


See it if The worst of the 5 editions of this show. Repeats of tricks done in past editions. No big illusions! Lazy production for quick holiday cash

Don't see it if I look forward to Illusionist every holiday season and I’m just so angry this put out this lazy and unoriginal show. Disappointed!!!!

Cheesy, Disappointing, Dizzying

See it if You have very little kids and money to burn.

Don't see it if You're not accompanied by a child. You don't want your child to be hit in the head with the gender gap in magic.

3/5 Stars. "There's little particularly holiday-ish about this 'Magic of the Holidays,' but there are six magicians of various kinds conjuring up some easygoing entertainment."
