Slow, Nostalgic, Entertaining, Dated

See it if Once you get past the self promotion and stories of Johnny Carson, the acts are pretty dazzling. He’s 80 something and deserves respect.

Don't see it if You have a hard time hearing about the days of old or don’t like mentalist acts.

Disappointing, Quirky

See it if you want to see Kreskin.

Don't see it if you want to see Kreskin at his best. He spent too much time reminiscing and too little time performing. He was very impatient and got upset.

"Watching the mentalist at the intimate Lion Theatre feels like sweet Uncle Harry’s performing for the family or local, longtime Shriners...Every word of every anecdote has been related hundreds of times. Too much is about then and not now...Jokes are ba-dump-dump vaudeville. He’s genial but has no flair. What works, works well. Too much doesn’t."
