Entertaining, Enjoyable, fun,

See it if a fun hour fifteen. guy does a nice job with his magic, lots of training goes in to this. kids will love it.

Don't see it if you are looking for a big production or a vegas style magic show.

Disappointing, Cliched, Insipid, Slow

See it if This show felt like a child's birthday party.

Don't see it if You like magic shows.

60
Funny, Disappointing, Cliched, Overrated

See it if If you love magic & illusion you will enjoy this performance

Don't see it if loud music-bright lights rather than entertainment amuse you-show was 1 hour-illusions were nothing you have not seen before-disappointing

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

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.

90
Clever, Masterful, Must see, Riveting, Great staging

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

79
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.

96
Delightful, Intense, Must see, Refreshing, Entertaining

See it if you want to spend quality time with friends or family

Don't see it if a small intimate magic show is not your cup of tea...but how anyone would not enjoy this show is beyond me

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

Also Show was supposed to start at 3PM. They had problems inside the house ... Read more Read less

Disappointing, Cliched, Dated, Cute

See it if You'd like a nice, little children friendly magic show with well performed illusions.

Don't see it if You're looking for a well-rounded or sophisticated "act" that plays to the entire house - left & right - and not just center. Loud music.

Absorbing, Delightful, Masterful, Entertaining, Magical!

See it if you want to be entertained with some masterful magic tricks that you would pay big bucks to see in Las Vegas but can see in Times Square.

Don't see it if you aren't into magic tricks that challenge you, slight-of-hand that mystify you, and just plain lots-of-fun visual effects. Only an hour!

85
Clever, Masterful, Refreshing, Riveting, Entertaining

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

Also Miles Thorn was a clever, skillful, showman who can use his patter to ... Read more Read less

Funny, Ambitious

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.

75
Masterful, Entertaining, Magic for adults and children

See it if you like magic shows. It isn't much different than any other magic show. Kids like it and so do many adults.

Don't see it if you don't like magic.

80
Clever, Entertaining, Energetic, Suprising

See it if U want actual magic show-not play. Talented young man's 1 person (+ 2 assnts) show w/many standards & some new. Well done he deserves credit

Don't see it if Not utterly polished; a bit downscale. Some tricks r rudimentary but all kids would def enjoy. Could use outside direction to tighten it up~

Absorbing, Clever, Edgy, Masterful, Entertaining

Don't see it if You don't like magic

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.

80
Clever, Dizzying, Masterful, Entertaining

See it if This is a real old-fashioned razzle dazzle magic show with some very clever tricks and lots of drama and two attractive female assistants

Don't see it if you like the sort of low-res mind reading illusion show. This is straight from Vegas

74
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.

49
Indulgent, Banal, Cliched, Slow, Dated

See it if You love magic shows that try too hard. And use women as objects.

Don't see it if You want to see something fresh.

76
Disappointing, Entertaining

See it if you are with children or don't mind an amateur. Miles Thorn definitely was energetic and committed. A couple tricks were impressive.

Don't see it if you would be put off by some simple tricks that you can easily figure out or expect to be amazed the entire show.

85
Delightful, Masterful, Refreshing, Entertaining, Great staging

See it if you like great close-up magic shows -- and you want to have a fun evening with your kids.

Don't see it if you don't like magic shows.

78
Clever, Entertaining

See it if You have kids and want to see an amateur magic show. 2nd part was more ambitious than the 1st. At times somewhat entertaining.

Don't see it if You are expecting a Vegas type illusionist show. He did a little juggling and had a couple of "big"acts, but it falls short.

50
Dated, Disjointed

See it if You haven't been to a bar mitzvah in a while and you miss the entertainment.

Don't see it if You're a feminist or an animal rights activist.

Disappointing, Insipid, Slow

See it if You like magic and with kids,.
