Don't see it if You don't like actual magic tricks, sleight of hand or subtly feminist shows. Read more

Exquisite, Funny, Must see, Riveting, Ambitious

See it if You want to see a show with magic tricks with audience participation (I did!) that empowers women.

Don't see it if You don't like the use of card tricks and illusions
