Don't see it if You are looking to see real theater. It's entertaining for what it is but is more suited for Vegas.

See it if you get a free ticket. If you have kids to entertain. If you never saw a magic trick in your life. All acts are old and dated.

Don't see it if you value your entertainment dollars. Really?...card "tricks"?...on a Broadway stage?

See it if you like magic. This is a Vegas-like magic show, but it feels out of place on Broadway. It's neat and entertaining, but it's far from great.
Don't see it if you hate magic, hate gimmicks, hate shows that feel like they have no place on Broadway (or even in NYC for that matter), or hate fun.
See it if you like old "Vaudeville" type of acts like on the Ed Sullivan show. Why they had I juggling act beat me what was the illusion.
