A theater reviewer from Newcity Stage visited The Magic Cabaret last week, and he wrote a marvelous review of his experience. Favorite quotes: “There were moments of improvisational surprise more real and funny than anything one might find at Second City” and “the act delivers expertise without pretension, producing the kind of direct and involving experience that all theater ensembles wish for, but few attain.” You can read the full review at the Newcity site.

The Magic Cabaret will be on a brief hiatus for the first two weeks of June. But mark June 17 on your calendar, because that’s when The Magic Cabaret begins the start of its Summer Season, with shows on Wednesday nights at 8pm! Come see Joe perform a Houdini-esque escape! Discover a book of poems that made David the strange individual he is today! And together, Joe and David will present a baffling little illusion that caused quite a sensation at the Bartholomew Fair in 1726! You’ll find out what the hubbub was all about when you visit The Magic Cabaret!

On Wednesday, April 1, we’ll celebrate the fun of fooling and being fooled! Back in olden times, during the Feast of Fools, the rules of the everyday world were turned upside down. At The Magic Cabaret, we continue that tradition, defying the laws of physics and making the impossible possible! And you can be part of the fun! Get tickets now!
