Entertaining, Quirky, Clever, Riveting

See it if you love magic &/or puzzles. Charismatic DH rapidly creates crossword! Thin on issues (no politics), but joy of mental gymnastics. Gd crowd.

Don't see it if you want real theater w/tradl perf. DH is funny, but not stand-up. Magic interwoven w/puzzle-solving. Fun, absorbing. Go early to venue!

Don't see it if You don't like solving the 4 pre-show puzzles beforehand. But they have a "little hint" and a "big hint" for each puzzle, so that helps!! Read more
