Entertaining, Delightful, Ambitious, Great staging, Thought-provoking

See it if You enjoy magic, this was a very good show with the added dimension of some auto biographical stuff about depression that was interesting.

Don't see it if You can't appreciate magic done on a bit of a budget. This guy is good and he tries hard but it's not Vegas...yet.

Average magican with very little stage present

See it if You are in Times Square and want to see a magic show.

Don't see it if you are expecting anything more than average in any way Read more

Clever, Great staging, Masterful, Must see, Riveting

See it if you appreciate a skillful, innovative, energetic, enthusiastic, attractive young magician in a short program (about an hour + intermission).

Don't see it if you don't enjoy magic or mind reading acts, violence, loud booming music or strobe lights or being in a theatre with children or Millennials

Ambitious, Funny

See it if You want a magic show that aspires to mix lyrical Las Vegas shows with a hip-hop vibe.

Don't see it if You prefer illusions that depend less on props and more on sleight of hand and skilled distraction.

Clever, Enchanting, Quirky, Entertaining

See it if You have children and want to see something affordable, want a smaller setting for a magic show, if you like magic. Prior to/after dinner.

Don't see it if You expect Vegas showmanship, venue or Vegas-type act. It's cute, but won't win a Tony.

Clever, Entertaining, Riveting, Refreshing, Masterful

See it if you enjoy magic and illusion, enjoy loud music

Don't see it if you're not into magic & illusion, you don't like a lot of unnecessarily loud music & skimpily clad young assistants along with your show Read more

Clever, Disappointing, Good for the kids

See it if you want to take the kids to a show. like magic shows in an intimate setting. like to support up ad coming artists

Don't see it if you have seen any of the great illusionists or are expecting a bona fide Broadway/off-Broadway show.

Thorn is earnest and talented but lacking showmanship and professional staging.

See it if you like magic, are with children and/or want to see an up and coming magician.

Don't see it if you need slick production or hate loud, popular music.
