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.

Amazing!, Entertaining, Dated

See it if You want to see a living legend and one of the best mentalists Of this and last century.

Don't see it if He talks a lot about the good old days which makes this show over 2 hours no intermission. Still, it’s The Amazing Kreskin! He’s earned it!

Very disappointing

See it if Don't see it. The man is a shadow of himself and most of the 2 lengthy hours is spent in talking about past triumphs.

Don't see it if Very few routines, mostly talk, talk,talk. Read more

Entertaining, Dated, Slow, Overrated, Indulgent

See it if you're a fan of Kreskin or have never seen him before. My first time, so it was still worth checking out.

Don't see it if you don't have 2 hrs to kill. The show could have really been cut down to 1 or 1.5 hrs, if not for the nostalgic ramblings. Read more

Slow, Disappointing, Excruciating

See it if you are a fan of Kreskin and would enjoy seeing him live; he pulls off a few remarkable feats of mind-reading, and works hard to entertain.

Don't see it if you have seen contemporary illusionists who have spoiled you with intense, outlandish and/or fast-paced feats — this show just limps along. Read more

Theater Pizzazz
April 12th, 2018

"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."
